Eleven-year-old Sydney has a problem named Fred. He's a retired bomb sniffing dog that her wounded veteran dad brought home with him from the war. Dad suffers from PTSD and only talks to Fred. Mom copes with the stress by working more. Sydney handles homework, household chores and a bully at school all on her own. This is not the perfect family she dreamed of while he was away.
Sydney wishes she was a dog so Dad would talk to her too. When her wish is granted her disappearance as a kid causes a breakdown that puts her dad in the hospital. Sydney's inner strength bubbles up as she struggles with life as a dog on a journey that opens her eyes to what Dad and Fred endured in Afghanistan. Her wish ultimately heals them all and gets her closer to her perfect family.
