Orión is a Rottweiler. He is loved by his family but misunderstood by many as being violent and aggressive. A massive storm hits and breaks the dam at the top of the village. The town is destroyed and a river of mud flows freely and violently, separating people from safety and their loved ones. Can Orión help bring them to safety?
Inspired by true events, when a dam broke the state of Vargas, Venezuela, Orión is a story of hope, friendship, and survival against all odds.
