Kaleb, a beautiful German Shepherd, grows up with a Jewish family in 1930's Berlin and develops a deep bond with the family's ten-year old son, Joshua. But with the passage of the Nuremberg Laws, it is decreed that Jews are forbidden to have pets. After weeks on the street, Kaleb is swept up and brought to a Nazi training camp. There he's taught how to hunt, track, and attack Jews. Kaleb becomes the dog of an SS Officer in a work camp. One day, a train arrives at the camp. Kaleb is there to attack anyone who tries to escape, but a familiar scent distracts him. Suddenly, he sees Joshua, his beloved master and friend.
