Hachi is one of my favorite movies.  



The original film told the true story of the Akita dog named HachikĊ who lived in Japan in the 1920s. This version, which places it in a modern American context



This movie stars Richard Gere, who also produced the movie.

On May 19, 2012, a bronze statue of Hachiko the dog was placed at the train depot at Woonsocket Depot Square, Woonsocket, Rhode Island, where Hachi was filmed. The train depot at One Depot Square has been named Hachiko Place




https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hachi:_A_Dog%27s_Tale






The story:

Parker Wilson, a professor at a Rhode Island college finds a puppy at the train station. He falls in love with the dog.

One morning, Hachi, now grown, digs under the fence and follows Parker to the station. He refuses to go home.

This continues for years, day after day.

When Parker dies suddenly. Hachi refuses to quit watching for him at the train station, day after day, year after year.

Finally Parker returns in Hachi's dream and Hachi passes away.
