When newlywed actress Sylva Kelegian shows up at a Manhattan veterinary clinic to walk a rescue dog, a strawberry-blonde puppy stumbles down the stairs and into her heart—opening it to the plight of hurt and abandoned dogs everywhere. After a move to Los Angeles with her actor husband, Sylva finds her marriage and burgeoning career challenged by the dramas of good and evil, darkness and light, played out every day in the streets, backyards, and homes of rich and poor pet owners alike.

God Spelled Backwards traces Sylva’s journey from reluctant New York dog adopter to passionate animal rescuer in Hollywood and shows us what one determined woman can accomplish in pursuit of the hope that, one day, man’s best friend will be treated as such.
