Premiere at Cosmonova – Superpower Dogs
In our everyday lives, they are our best friends. When disaster strikes or we suffer from illness, they are also our superheroes. In the film we follow six dogs that with great training and innate talents perform great deeds in human service.

Among other things, we have to follow the puppy Halo, who together with his super trainer Cat, is trained to become a life-saving dog. It turns out that strong bonds and lots of love not only create a strong friendship, it creates super powers beyond the ordinary.
