Charley, a fine arts painter, thinks he’s a werewolf. He can’t remember the things he’s done but the papers report random acts of violence taking place at night in this small upstate hamlet. Now the whole town must rally to find out what is tearing it apart: mistrust, fear, or a monster that comes out at night.

“A poignant and emotionally intelligent exploration of control, memory, guilt and loss through the familiar figure of the classical werewolf.”

—Alexandria Heller-Nicholas, AWFJ
