A post-apocalyptic vaudeville comedy, Dog Act follows Zetta Stone, a traveling performer, and her companion Dog (a young man undergoing a voluntary species demotion) as they walk through the wilderness of the former U.S.A., heading toward a gig in China, if only they can find it… Recommended for mature audiences due to profanity, violence, and adult situations.
