In Underdog, a Vermont dairy farmer risks losing the only home he’s ever known to chase his dreams of dog mushing in Alaska. Revealed in intimate vérité, Doug at first presents as a modern Quixote, but then finds to his delight that sometimes the world can be as he imagines. The resonance of the journey extends to all who have faced down loneliness, isolation and the struggle to make sense of forces beyond control.
