After losing his career job in midlife, Denis must figure out what to do next.
He never dreamed his life would go to the dogs.
Starring Steve Callahan and David LaDuca, ABRUPT DECISION is the fifth feature film from director Paul Bright (Angora Ranch, Altitude Falling) and is about a man who has struggled to make the ‘right’ decisions his entire life. Now faced with unemployment and no prospects in his computer career field, he begins rescuing stray dogs – who like him are displaced.
His new obsession to save those who are abandoned threatens to ruin his marriage and lose his home. He struggles to find a balance that will please everyone, but ultimately must make the toughest decision of all when his mother has a serious medical emergency.
Advocating both spay/neuter programs for pets and adopting animals from overcrowded shelters, this film will be seen around the globe. The filmmaker hopes this film will influence communities to reduce unwanted pet breeding and take greater responsibility for the animals living in our streets.

This film is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a 501©3 non-profit arts organization. With the changing dynamics of film distribution, it is no longer possible to recoup production costs. Audiences expect to see media at little or no cost, and the only way to make these movies is with donations from people who agree important stories like this must be told.
Paul Bright’s unique perspective connects with audiences craving stories about their lives in a primarily straight world. His films are quirky, funny, honest and compelling.
Fans of his films live around the globe and speak many different languages but identify with the commonality of yearning for understanding and acceptance.
