When John, a blind man, discovers that his guide dog and best friend, Jubilee, is dying, his world seems to crumble. Unwilling to apply for a new dog, but unable to live without one John struggles to find the strength to say goodbye and find a way to push on.
Guide was one of two thesis films directed by Jackson Miller at Chapman University. Along with an incredibly devoted and talented team, Jackson set out to tell a story inspired by his experiences raising guide dogs for the blind, and seeing the effect that losing a dog could have on a blind person. The film just premiered at the prestigious Austin Film festival.
