Wolves and werewolves lurk throughout the dreams of young Rosaleen (Sarah Patterson), who imagines that she must journey through a dark forest to live with her grandmother (Angela Lansbury). When Rosaleen meets a rugged hunter in the woods, she discovers that she has an animal-like attraction to him, leading to a macabre turn of events. The lupine-centric film also features stories within the main tale, told by both Rosaleen and her grandma, all of which have a supernatural bent.

Programmed by Stirling Women's Aid: 
'This choice was inspired by conversations about women as forces of nature, as storytellers, and human beings whose sexuality is not to be feared, ignored, or taken advantage of. The group noticed that women were often likened to animals in ways that diminished them - hen, chick, fox, chicken nugget! This film was programmed as a celebration of the strength of women.'
