When their new foster parents forbid 16-year old Andi and her younger brother Bruce to have a pet, the young orphans have to quickly find a new home for their dog, Friday. One day, they stumble upon an abandoned hotel. Seeing it as a fit place to hide Friday, they transform it into a dog-paradise and also help stray dogs to find a shelter there. However, when the dogs' bark generates suspicion among the neighbors, they now have to figure out way to keep others away from the hotel.
