Ania works in IT. Somehow she’s ended up living a life that really doesn’t feel like hers. Ania’s life seems dreary, a sort of inanimate limbo of hopeless conformity. Nonetheless, Ania is anything but the social study’s central character, as she increasingly radiates a strange grace that grows more and more as she begins to do increasingly unusual things. It all begins with a strange encounter: in the middle of the park, she comes face to face with a wolf. They look each other right in the eye – and it seems to her as if her former life were a joke. She never lets go of this moment, just as she never lets go of the thought of finding the wolf again and holding on to him forever.
"Wild" tells the story of a love affair between a woman and a wolf – and fearlessly explores the boundaries between human and animal love.
