"Ever since the Great East Japan Earthquake Disaster that occurred on March 11, 2011, many dogs were left abandoned or lost from their homes. This is a heart-breaking, compassionate story filled with hope and affection for the animals that they love." - Toronto Japan Film Festival 2016
"I happened to watch this film a couple of weeks ago in Japan, which moved me so much. Thus, I decided to organize its screening both in Japan (Odawara) and in the UK (Hertford). My big gratitude goes to its film director Ms. Akane Yamada for having produced such a meaningful film. It certainly deserves many viewers." - Director of the Friends With Paws, Haruko Kuwabara
