Sam works in a kennel in Ostend, where canine therapist Koen teaches owners how to take care of their four-legged friends. Sam and Eva, the owner of a restless dog, get close as a friendship, and perhaps a new safe haven for both, develops.

Sam works in a dog shelter. Sam’s a shy and lonely person that cares for her job and for the animals in her care. Her colleague Koen teaches a class for dog owners about behavioural training. Sam takes this class, where she meets a young mother who struggles with raising her dog. Cast by the lighthouse lights on a desert beach they bond, talking about having friends and their mutual love for pets. Come Here is a kind and delicate film about loneliness, friendship and all its small gestures. (Rui Mendes)
