GENRE: Thriller, Crime

Two estranged friends reunite but before settling down one disappears on a job leaving his buddy with his dog to look after and their world changes forever.



When a blast from the past knocks one day at Dominic Pearson's house, he is asked to do an old friend (Calvin) a favour and look after his little dog (Trigger) - what can possibly go wrong? Calvin mysteriously disappears again and it's not long before his new canine friend Trigger, gets Dominic into a fix that changes all their lives and not necessarily for the better -- next morning Dominic takes Trigger for a walk in the nearby forest. There, they chance upon two men, Rowtledge and Justin, quite clearly up to no good who attempt to cover-up their wrong doing - Dominic’s curiosity leads him back to the woodlands the next day, taking his new canine friend Trigger with him... where they discover a dead body buried in the woods.

Trigger it seems, is a dog with connections and an unnerving past. It's not long before his new owner Dominic is dragged by Trigger's lead into a world of waiting trouble... Trigger has a secret all of his own.

Trigger is an inventive twisted thriller/crime drama. A 'not your everyday couple' are exposed to a reality of a life we all know exists and their new found friend Trigger, a dog, captivates their hearts and minds as they're led unwittingly on an adventure that will change unsuspecting circumstances forever. Trigger (certainly not your ordinary dog) is full of mischief and incite.
