The filmmaker Nathalie Biancheri brings a different perspective of species dysphoria in Wolf. Starring Lily-Rose Depp And George MacKay.

The Synopsis 

Believing he is a wolf trapped in a human body, Jacob (George MacKay, “1917”) eats, sleeps, and lives like a wolf – much to the shock of his family. When he’s sent to a clinic, Jacob and his animal-bound peers are forced to undergo increasingly extreme forms of ‘curative’ therapies. However once he meets the mysterious Wildcat (Lily-Rose Depp, “Tusk”), and as their friendship blossoms into an undeniable infatuation, Jacob is faced with a challenge: will he renounce his true self for love.
