Truth is stranger than fiction in this riveting exploration of the power of storytelling.


At the age of 7, Misha Defonseca was separated from her Jewish parents when they were captured by the Nazis. While hidden with a Catholic family in Brussels she ran away from safety, determined to walk to Germany and find her mother and father. Winding her way through the woodlands to avoid capture, she found comfort and companionship in a wolf pack that protected her along the way.


Misha went on to share her story and a bestselling book about her survival was the result. But as the relationship between Defonseca and her publisher soured, the true nature of her experience was questioned and a lawsuit began.


Here, filmmaker Sam Hobkinson attempts to unravel the truth with a range of inventive techniques. Slickly assembled are a selection of firsthand interviews, archival photos and clips, dramatic recreations and animation, all of them adding pieces to the puzzle that is the “real” story of Misha Defonseca.


Doubting the account of a Holocaust survivor is borderline unthinkable, and yet this film provocatively takes on the idea, digging for truth in a way that feels transgressive but vital. (Chris Coetsee)
