College professor Parker Wilson finds an abandoned dog at the train station on his way home.

After failing to find its owner decides to take the poor lost animal in, initially reluctant Parker and his wife soon grow to love the dog.

Parker and the animal soon form a strong and unexplainable bond, so much so that he walks Parker to and from the train station every day.

But when Parker unexpectedly dies, Hachi continues his daily routine of waiting for his master at the train station for the next nine years, becoming a fixture in the community.
