Inspired by a true story from Japan, Hachikō celebrates a decade of legendary loyalty in a way that is accessible for audiences of all ages.
 
Professor Ueno works very hard and never smiles. His housekeeper frets that he does not eat enough, his students know him as a distant man and the stationmaster helps him catch his train each day by keeping a ticket ready for him as he struggles to make it to the platform on time. Life is busy, crowded and also empty for skinny, silent Professor Ueno.
 
Ueno’s housekeeper gives the professor a birthday present – an Akita Inu puppy. The yellow dog with a curly tail quickly brings a smile to the professor’s face. The professor names the dog Hachikō, and the dog becomes part of his daily routine, walking him to the station in the mornings and waiting to meet him there in the evenings. One day, the professor dies at while at work. Hachikō waits for him at the station… and continues to wait, every day, for 9 years.
