About The Movie:
Kyra (Brooks) is goal-oriented in all aspects of her life, from professional to personal. When she meets Trevor (Witte), the new manager at the grocery store where Kyra works, he seems to check off all the boxes when it comes to what she’s looking for in love. When her wellmeaning co-worker and friend Mark (Benjamin Charles Watson, “Designated Survivor”) tells dogloving Trevor that Kyra has an agility trained dog, she plays along. But when Trevor tells her he can’t wait to see Kyra enter her dog in the upcoming agility contest the store is sponsoring, Kyra is faced with a canine quandary. She quickly adopts an adorable dog, Sam (Nova), from a local shelter but it soon becomes clear she needs help on the training front. Although he’s hesitant at first, Kyra convinces Kevin (Rosner), the head of the shelter, to put his training skills to use and help her get Sam competition-ready. As the two spend time together, not only does Sam begin to flourish at agility, but Kyra and Kevin start to fall for each other. But when Kevin learns why Kyra adopted Sam and needed to train him in a hurry, their budding romance hits a new obstacle that may throw them off course.
