The Givers

A Feel-Good Story about Runaway teens, Ex-Military Veterans and a Shelter for Dogs

In Manhattan’s wealthy Tribeca neighborhood stands a dilapidated shelter whose occupants: abandoned dogs, homeless teens and military veterans, are sad reminders of our throwaway society. The shelter’s injured souls struggle to justify their existence, not only to the trendy residents, but to themselves. The Givers is a hopeful story of how even hardened people, when given a gentle nudge, may surprise us with their inherent sense of humanity. There are givers and takers in this world. Most people hunger to give, but don’t know how until they are shown the way.
