Hailed in The New York Times as ”a groundbreaking American classic,” David T. Little and Royce Vavrek’s Dog Days depicts a world of chaos during a raging, undefined war on US soil.
Dog Days follows a single dysfunctional family, struggling for survival in an atmosphere of increasing starvation and violence. Into their desperate lives enters "Prince", a man dressed in a dog suit, who befriends daughter Lisa and provides her with an escape from an isolated existence. As the family’s condition and health worsen, its male members spring to action, sinking to a level of depravity that provides a shocking and unforgettable ending for all.
