The story of Ryan, a depressed man who believes he is getting nowhere in his life and plans to kill himself. In the middle of his attempted suicide, he is asked to watch his neighbor's dog, Wilfred, but Ryan can only see Wilfred as a real person and not the animal that everyone else sees. As they begin to bond more and become friends, Wilfred teaches Ryan life lessons about people, love, and living.
