Moon and the Wolfgirl, the girl writer and the world of the incredible

"People are ugly, they don't have fur, and they abuse animals by keeping them in captivity" That's why in Moon's illustrated novels all the memorable characters tend to be animals. Being the daughter of two writers, Moon, a 10-years-old girl, often writes a novel every time a bright idea comes to her mind. 

In this film directed by Sarah Domogala, we get to know Moon through a narrative structure that interweaves reality with the fiction of her own story called "Shadow", a fable about a girl who has the power to become a wolf.

The documentary introduces us to the graphic world of Moon's sixth novel through animated scenes that reconstruct the unexpected events of a plot that cunningly blends fantasy, suspense and tragedy.

Turned into the narrator of her own film, Moon opens a window to her imaginary world, where she sheds her ideals and aspirations. Behind the words and colorful drawings on the sheets of paper, Shadow and her little writer will have much in common.
