"Walt is the hero you didn’t know you needed. In order to rescue Tony, Walt’s self loathing has to be reversed. He has to learn to trust that he is worthy of love. He is so ordinary and so fallible that his personal triumph so hard fought he is an easy character to root for and it is a film that is easy to love." -Pamela Fortier, Media Women Worldwide

Anxiety-ridden Walt embarks on a desperate quest through Portland, Maine to retrieve his stolen dog, Tony, before his girlfriend, the more strait-laced Wendy, returns from a crucial business trip, or risk losing them both.

Walt’s search is a journey as idiosyncratic and detoured as Portland itself and Walt himself, whose forlorn face more befits the “hangdog” name than the dog’s ever could. Director Matt Cascella and writer Jen Cordery have made a film that’s charming, original, and sweet in its own deliberately shaggy way. Hangdog is a real Maine-made discovery.” —Ken Eisen, MIFF
