This movie is another tear jerker, anything that has to do with animals always makes me cry. This story is about a shepherd named Max. who was a service dog in the war? When his master a Marine is killed in battle, Max is sent home. . Max’s master’s younger brother Justin is a snide adolescent boy who’s becoming more rebellious against his dad. Reluctantly, Justin takes responsibility for Max, and by circumstances rather than his own choice, gets pushed in the direction of heroism.
At the funeral, they are introduced to Max, his brothers dog. Max takes an instant liking to Justin and little by little they begin to bond with each other. Max teaches Justin the value of friendship and both of their lives are changed. The only person Max takes a liking to is Justin, and with that friendship there is a bond. Justin and Max become a team.
Dogs have had an important role on battlefields since World War I and have been honored for bravery time and time again. There have been over 3,000 war dogs used in Iraq and Afghanistan;
This opportunity for Justin to be a hero comes when one of the Marines who served with his brother pursues criminal weapons transactions back home in Angelina County, Texas, in the same neighborhood where Max and Justin and Justin’s parents live.
