Hachiko: A Dog's Story is a 2009 American drama film based on the true story of the faithful Akita Hachikō. It is a remake of the 1987 Japanese film Hachikō Monogatari.

After the professor dies while away from home, the dog keeps vigil waiting for his master for nearly a decade.for complete info click here
the link is the original source of the synopsis article,I just want to share it with the reader aside to my personal comment.

comment:the first time i heard this legend is when i watched IWGP(ikebukuro west gate park), one japan drama a few weeks ago.one of the character told the other about the hachiko statue's history. and now this movie is a remake of the japanese version.i prefer to look for both version to compare before giving any review later.but this sure is interesting.
