After a magical twist, Indy, a once-unwanted shelter dog, transforms into a human, embarks on a quest to win back his owner's affection from her sneaky boyfriend, all while rediscovering his true self in a whimsical world that went from color-blind to vibrant cotton-candy hues.

Indy, the unwanted pup, is running out of his time at the local pound. But he is saved by Kimmy in the nick of time, finding love and security in her family. Well, so he thought: Indy's happy days come to a screeching halt when Kimmy meets Jared, a musician with a questionable scent only Indy can detect. Feeling neglected and fearful of losing Kimmy's affection, Indy eats a Miracle Dog Biscuit granted by a mysterious fairy to be a human. Indy wakes up the next morning from grayscale to the candy-colored world and dives into the adventure of winning back Kimmy's affection from Jared. Unravel the enchanting tale of Indy's transformation, where he learns that belonging and love come from within.

A Case Study

Dog movie = 💰💵🤑

"Forget about Avengers, Fate of the Furious, and Wolf Warriors. Forget about Ant-Man or Spider-Man or Thor: Ragnarok. In China, Justice League is now in the dog house." - Rob Cain (

A humble little movie with no major talent attached to it and a small prior audience called "A Dog's Purpose" beat out "Justice League" and earned $88 million in China back in 2017, becoming one of China’s 25 top-grossing movies that year.

A movie featuring dogs and positive messaging - just like “When I Was a Human” - has incredible potential to attract the same attention.
