"Starfish" is a female driven story about grief, healing, friendship, family and the strong bond between dogs and humans. It's touching, funny and a tad romantic. A film for viewers who like stories about people and relationships. It's also a film for dog lovers and for anyone who has experienced loss.
Director: Shira Levin, Writer: Shira Levin, Producers: Shira Levin and James Kwei
With: Christopher L. McAllister, Pascal Yen-Pfister, Sophia Colon Roosevelt, Lois Markle
