About Street Dogs of South Central

Narrated by Queen Latifah, this feature length documentary follows the story of Elsie—a mother struggling to raise her litter of puppies in a harsh urban environment. Every day, Elsie and her brood travel the streets of South Central in search of food and shelter. Their daily struggle for survival in the ghetto is brilliantly captured and emotionally revealed in this captivating film. Street Dogs of South Central captures the truly challenging conditions in which these canines live and reveals how the dogs adapt with their innate abilities.
