Meat? Really? Starved, Uzbe swallowed it. But there was something in it. He suddenly felt so dizzy. His consciousness was fading out fast. He fell. Two men emerged from the heavy mist and put him in a sack. Uzbe was horrified. With his last energy, he whined: Dad, Mom, take this nightmare away… But would he ever wake up at all? Bali, 2008, Uzbe went missing. Him and his owners, a Canadian and Balinese couple, relentlessly searched for each other, navigating their way across dog-eating world and mass culling for rabies outcry in an island where social gaps, prejudice, and cultural clashes laid in a plain sight. The journey somehow brought the best of them and those they encountered along the way. Paradise can be deceiving. Hell can be uplifting. This is a tale inspired by true events that will make you wonder what should you feel.
