The Story


In the picturesque desert mountains of Payson AZ, a mother, her children, and family dog, Dude, set out for a camping trip they soon won’t forget. A terrifying car crash rapidly turns into the family being taken to the nearby hospital while Dude is thrust into the treacherous desert mountains of Arizona. Forced to survive in strange and frightening terrain, Dude must leave his domestic instincts behind as he fights for his life against the wild creatures that lurk in the desert. A story of a family who refuses to accept the inevitable of their precious family dog until absolutely forced to - Dude can’t possibly endure the unforgiving wilderness – and so the search begins. A family that is lost in their day to day world is found in their hour by hour quest for what is unbearable in their heart; their missing, youngest family member…Dude.
