‘Crying wolf’ becomes a fascinating reality in Misha And The Wolves, a documentary exploration of the life of Holocaust survivor Misha Defonseca, a Belgian immigrant who, upon travelling miles and miles through the European wilderness, gained the support of a pack of wolves that took her in and protected her as one of their own.
Misha’s tale gains traction, becoming an international best-seller and a feature film, but as it does, the cracks in her story come to light – and a fallout with her publisher-turned-detective reveals a darker, far more complicated truth.
