A schoolboy writes about his hero, his grandfather’s dog Hachiko. In a flashback, a puppy is crated and sent to the United States from a Japanese monastery. The crate’s tag tears, and when the puppy escapes from the crate at a remote Rhode Island town’s train station, Parker Wilson, a music professor in nearby Providence, takes the dog home for the night. His wife isn’t pleased, but after struggling to locate the owner, she decides to let the dog stay. “Hachiko” or “Eight,” a lucky number, is written on the dog’s tag, according to a Japanese acquaintance. While Parker is unable to teach the dog to fetch, his friend explains that the dog can learn a different kind of loyalty. Tragedy puts your commitment to the test.
