Bells and Brohm: Private Detectives is a work of fiction where acknowledgement of your inner self is crucial to understanding who you are and what you want out of life. While Deployed with the United States Air Force, Emma Bells and her military working dog companion, Brohm, incur emotional and physical trauma. They are discharged from the service due to their injuries and must quickly learn how to live as civilians. Emma chooses to become a private detective thinking her training, along with Brohm’s ability to track, will let them easily assimilate into their new profession. Brohm soon becomes frustrated with Emma for her ignorance and the low stake cases she insists on taking. He is meant to work and be worked while she can’t move past what happened on their deployment. Struggling with the trauma of her past, Emma soon becomes overly attached and dependent on Brohm for companionship. Throughout the piece, their clients help her better understand herself and her place in this world. In the end, Emma must acknowledge that she can’t live her life alone or solely dependent on Brohm.
