Synopsis for Following Atticus:
Tom Ryan is a middle-aged, overweight, no-nonsense newspaper editor. But when Atticus M. Finch, a Miniature Schnauzer, arrives, he is forced to question everything about his life. Wanting to raise money in memory of a friend who died of cancer, Tom decides that they will both climb 48 of New Hampshire’s mountains during a single winter – twice. What awaits the pair is the adventure of a lifetime. In an enchanting but dangerous winter wonderland, they face raging blizzards, frostbite and storms. It is a rare test of endurance that soon becomes a soul-searching journey. And then, within a month of returning home, tragedy strikes. Atticus goes blind, and the blood tests suggest something even worse. Now facing an even greater challenge, Tom and Atticus undertake a journey through darkness and into light. “Following Atticus” is a heartwarming story of friendship, selflessness, redemption – and above all, love.
