The touching story about a loyal dog named Ba Tong who waited for the return of his owner for ten years after his owner's death. This film is a remake of Kaneto Shindo's 1987 Japanese film Hachikō Monogatari. The original film told the true story of the Akita dog named Hachikō who lived in Japan in 1923-1935.

Celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival, all attendees will receive an individually wrapped moon cake after the screening, courtesy of the Consulate-General of the People's Republic of China in Chicago.
