Award winning filmmaker Julia Huffman (Medicine of the Wolf) takes us on a journey from her beginnings of being adopted and then the healing that took place with her first dog Bozo. This relationship with her canine, ultimatley led her to discovering the profound power of healing that both dogs and wolves (the dog cousin) have on humans and the planet.

Filmmaker Julia Huffman won the Animal Content in Entertainment Award from the Humane Society of the United States as well as various other awards for her documentary Medicine of the Wolf. The film was predominantly funded through a successful Kickstarter campaign, with people from all over the world donating to see the film happen. In this beautiful and important documentary, filmmaker Julia Huffman travels to Minnesota into wolf country to pursue the deep intrinsic value of the species. Medicine of the Wolf centers on the remarkable, world-renowned environmentalist and National Geographic photographer Jim Brandenburg, who has photographed, studied and been on the ground with wolves for 45 years. The film also has a crucial message: the gray wolf, a top predator of the ecosystem must be preserved on the endangered species list.
