A happy gang of dogs heads into the woods. Leading the pack is Michael Borowski - amateur playwright, rambling philosopher and survivor of childhood brain injury.

The Dogwalker is a remarkable cinéma-vérité portrait, a moving account of one man's battle to reconstruct a shattered identity - and a winning meditation on Zen and the art of dogwalking.

"I'm the alpha,"Michael says, untanglling the leashes. Meet The Dogwalker. Take a walk with the master.
