What happens when man's best friend is treated as its worst enemy?

What starts as an ordinary tale about a teenage girl trying to find her dog after her divorced father put it out on the streets, takes a sinister turn in this year's "Un Certain Regarde"-winner WHITE GOD. Suddenly the deserted streets of Budapest are overrun by an army of wild dogs. Where did they come from? And where are they going? Equal parts horror and political allegory, WHITE GOD is a film about a modern Europe where certain groups of people are treated like animals. This is what happens when they strike back.
