Bone è un cagnolino che ha perso la mamma e, per motivi diversi, anche le due famiglie che lo hanno successivamente adottato. Charlie è un uomo nella cui memoria bruciano ancora le morti del fratellino e del loro cucciolo Sunny. Henry è il figlio di Charlie, ha undici anni e vorrebbe tanto un cane: farebbe qualsiasi cosa per averne uno. Lo mette sempre al primo posto nell'elenco dei regali per Natale, ma suo padre non vuole saperne. Henry, che è tanto obbediente quanto tenace, non rinuncia al suo sogno, e quando incontra il randagio Bone è deciso a non lasciarsi sfuggire la possibilità di realizzare il suo grande desiderio. Tre vite, quelle di un padre, di un figlio e di un cane, intrecciate in una storia che parla di incontri e separazioni, di abbandono e di rinascita, della morte e dell'irrinunciabile ricerca della felicità che accompagna la vita.
