Information

‘Union’ tells a story of a one legged man and his three legged dog and how they meet.

Tim Turner lost his leg in his 20’s in a motorbike accident; Boiski the dog lost his leg in a car accident. At a dance party Boiski walk straight up to Tim and sat down next to him then promptly jumped in his car and wouldn’t leave. After a discussion with his owner Tim was able to keep the dog.

Tim wrote the poem that is spoken during the film.

Union poem the bank of a river,

a dance floor

destiny’s head, reared once more

3am the dark of night

a 3 legged dog has taken flight

brushed aside by his life past

a union, our souls to hold fast

Boiski it seemed, had a plan

him my dog and I his man

how, I ponder he chose me

I with one and he with three

this mystery, yet I do unravel

four legs between, the same road to travel
