The Dog

On August 22, 1972, John Wojtowicz entered a Manhattan bank intending to rob the place to get money for his lover's sex change operation. The robbery didn't go off as planned. The story has become famous as the basis for the movie "Dog Day Afternoon." Now, documentary filmmakers Alison Berg and Frank Keraudren delve into the story behind, and beyond, events that inspired the Al Pacino feature. A surprising portrait of a complicated man emerges.
