Canada, 2020. Directed by Lucas Birnie. 96 min. NR
Max Pemberton is your average everyday schmuck who’s had to give up on his grand aspirations and settle into a more practical lifestyle in the small town of Lafontaine.
In the midst of trying to take back some semblance of control over his life the lowly insurance broker has a chance encounter under the light of a full moon, exacerbating his personal and professional issues while also placing him at the center of a city-wide manhunt.
Finally fed up with his work archiving old case files for Slippery Rock Insurance, Max makes a last-ditch effort to take charge of his life but gets more than he bargained for.
Max must now fight to rid himself of his newfound affliction while still managing his work life and relationship, attempting to salvage what’s left of his humanity before it’s too late.
Were-Wool (2020) is the feature debut of writer/director Lucas Birnie. Shot on location throughout Ontario over the past 3 years.
