Greatest Bond

Greatest Bond

This documentary follows the journey of four disabled veterans as they travel to a prison in Gatesville, Texas, to be paired with a service dog. These dogs have been expertly trained by female prison inmates serving hard time. Not only do these dogs help the veterans on a very practical level, but they also provide constant emotional support, protection, and relief from the terrors of their combat-related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Peppered among the vulnerable and broken veteran stories, is the lighthearted joy of the puppies, the redirected lives of the female inmates and the good-natured humor of the veterans and inmates as they work closely together. The film is a story of redemption for the inmates and profound new hope for the veterans, through the unconditional love of these very special dogs.
