The touching and poignant journey finds a way to inspire every lover of hot dogs and humanity.
The film has also been accepted to the Academy Award qualifying 10th Annual AmDocs Festival (March 26-April 4) and 10th Annual Julien Dubuque International Film Festival where the film will make its mid-west premiere and is nominated as “Best Short Documentary” (April 18-April 25).
