All the animals at the Open Bud Ranch can see that Jack likes keeping his space to himself. But when Charlie arrives, he doesn’t see Jack at all. He’s still getting used to seeing out of only one of his eyes.

The two get off to a bumpy start. At first, Jack is anxious and distrustful. But one day, he summons his courage and guides Charlie to his favorite sunlit field: This Way, Charlie. And so begins a powerful friendship that will be tested by life’s storms–but will ultimately change each life for the better.

From the award-winning team behind Ida, Always comes a sensitive, nuanced story about kindness, patience, and love–and the importance of understanding and accepting each other’s challenges and differences.
