Documentary examines the bizarre life of John Wojtowicz, a bank robber who would serve as the inspiration for Dog Day Afternoon.
John Wojtowicz was a peculiar man with an unmatched libido, maintaining a debauched lifestyle that saw him enjoying the company of numerous wives and partners of either sex. His attempted 1972 robbery of a Brooklyn bank to finance a partner's sexual reassignment surgery would serve as the inspiration for Oscar-winning film Dog Day Afternoon, earning Wojtowicz worldwide notoriety resulting in his adopting "The Dog" as his nickname upon his release from prison six years later. The Dog is the late Wojtowicz's curious life story brought to the big screen, following his transformation from Lothario into criminal, movie inspiration, and activist.
