An Australian cattle dog named Caity must loyally protect her friend, Delia, a beautiful and talented child actress, after she falls victim to a freak accident that wreaks havoc on the entire family, who depend on her for their upscale lifestyle. Eleven year old actress Delia Cross's days are a blur of hard work on -set, auditions and tutors. Her family-- driven, pill--popping stage mother Pat, wastrel dad Bart, and introverted twin brother Robbie-- depend on her for their upscale lifestyle. Delia in turn depends on Caity, her beloved ginger Queensland Heeler, as her only calming influence, and friend. When a freak accident puts Delia in the danger zone, Caity evolves from protector to savior, from scapegoat to prop, and eventually, from avenger to survivor.
