“One of Canada’s orignals, known not only for the quality of her work, but for the sheer range of her career”— Maclean’s

The Last Dog of War is the true story of a trip Griffiths makes with her father to the U.K., to the last reunion of his RAF comrades, the 49th Squadron, Bomber Command.  It’s the story of a long ago war and a present war – between the Allies and the Nazis, between a father and a daughter.  Through a maze of obstacles they stumble their way through the charged world of family and war.
