Walt (Desmin Borges) is a fish out of water in his own skin. He’s now also a fish out of water in Portland, Maine, having recently moved with his girlfriend, Wendy (Kelly O’Sullivan), to be closer to her parents. Without a job or a plan, and with a new dog competing for Wendy’s affections, Walt has reached peak anxiety. When Wendy leaves town for the most important business trip of her career, she entrusts Walt with one task: taking care of her fur baby, Tony. After a careless mistake gets Tony stolen, Walt embarks on a wild goose chase to retrieve the dog before Wendy returns, or risk losing them both. Along the way, he connects with locals Marianne (Barbara Rosenblat), a wisecracking nonconformist, and Brent (Steve Coulter), a recent widower, who force him to confront his anxieties and embrace human (and canine!) connection.
