Tickets are available in advance for $10 (screening only), $30 (screening and party at Sphere). On the night of the event, tickets are $15 (screening only), $40 (screening and party).

The Los Angeles dogwalking scene provides the colorful backdrop to the story of Ellie Moore (played by Buffalo native Diane Gaidry), on the run from her latest abusive boyfriend, who finds herself broke and broken on the lonely streets of L.A.
