Misha Defonseca’s story of surviving the Holocaust is remarkable. As a young Jewish girl, Misha was taken in by a Catholic family after her mother and father were deported by the Nazis. In a desperate attempt to find her parents, at the age of seven Misha took off on foot from Belgium to Germany. But perhaps the most astounding part of her story is that, on this solo journey through the woods, Misha was adopted by a pack of wolves who fed and protected her for years. After writing a memoir detailing her astonishing experiences, Misha’s story became an international sensation. Everyone wanted a piece of Misha’s incredible, almost mythical tale, including Disney and Oprah. But after a falling out with her publisher, it is discovered that some of the details in Misha’s story don’t quite add up under scrutiny. A riveting investigative documentary, MISHA AND THE WOLVES warrants your very close attention, because not everything is as it seems. — G.S.
