This based-on-a-true-story drama promises to tug heartstrings with the emotional tale of a U.S. Marine and her combat dog. It follows the saga of Marine Corporal Megan Leavey (Kate Mara) and her K9, Rex, when their bond is threatened by an IED that separates them across oceans. The real life duo completed over 100 missions in Iraq, and their story garnered national attention when Senator Chuck Schumer helped to reunite the two.
