"Little Q," a yellow lab with a curious birthmark, is training to become a guide dog for the blind. When his training is complete, Little Q is sent to help Lee Bo Ting, a famous, recently blinded chef. Irritable and bitter, Bo Ting is at first reluctant to rely on Little Q and even tries to drive him away several times. But through his loyalty, Little Q eventually teaches Bo Ting how to trust again, opening him up to a new life of wonderful possibilities. (Gary Reber)

Special features include the trailer and upfront previews.

The 2.39:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, upconverted to 2160p with greater resolution and luminance, was photographed digitally using the Red DSMC2 Monstro and Sony CineAlta Venice camera systems and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture is vivid throughout with natural color fidelity. Little Q is beautiful and natural in appearance. Hues are rich and warm. Fleshtones are natural. Contrast is wide with natural black levels, revealing shadow delineation and bright highlights. When settings are viewed through Little Q, the images are muted in color. Resolution is excellent with fine detail exhibited throughout. This is a wonderful visual experience in settings in China that will warm the heart and captivate viewers. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel format delivers excellent fidelity. The music spans the soundstage and extends aggressively to the surrounds for effective envelopment. Atmospherics are completely natural within the city environments. Dialogue is nicely integrated spatially. The original soundtrack is in Chinese with English subtitles. This is a wonderful soundtrack that reaps in naturalness. (Gary Reber)
