We have an exclusive clip from Quill: The Life of a Guide Dog, which will be released in select theaters May 18. Yoichi Sai directs this documentary, which follows the life of a seeing eye dog, from the day he was born to his pairing with a Japanese blind man.

The documentary-like story of a yellow Labrador Retriever guide dog for the blind named Quill. We follow Quill from the litter, his selection to become a guide, his life with a foster family until his first birthday, followed by highly specialized schooling in guiding the sightless. He is then paired with a blind man named Watanabe Mitsuru who is at first reluctant to rely on Quill. But Quill's great patience, gentleness and skill eventually wins him over and they become inseparable friends.
