Timothy (Kyle Donnery) shares a rare connection and deep friendship with his dog Samantha and is able to communicate with her using a silver flute that his father gave him. Because of a recent divorce, Timothy’s mother (Kelley Jackson Garcia) can no longer tolerate Samantha because she brings up too many memories of her marriage. Once Samantha is taken away, Timothy discovers that other animals around him such as birds and whales respond to his flute playing. Based on the notes he hears from these creatures, he begins to write music. But the only piece of music Timothy doesn’t have is Samantha’s song, and so a unique journey to find her and complete her piece of music begins.
