When Animals Dream
Filmfest 2014

An outsider in a small coastal community, 19-year-old Marie lives alone with her parents. She has no one to confide in except Daniel, a young man mesmerised by her wild nature. When Marie discovers her body undergoing a transformation, she begins searching for answers linked to her family's hidden past. Her father tries to keep her safe from the watchful and fearful gaze of the townspeople, but something rebellious within Marie cannot be tamed. Soon her search for the truth will send her on a collision course with everyone around her – with the exception of Daniel, who will follow her to the end of the night.
