Synopsis: They couldn’t be more different: Tilly, Queen of pranks, Sophie, a sporty Tomboy, Lilia who loves to experiment with make up and styling and Marla, who’s always with her nose in a book. All four have been sent to a forest camp by their parents, to find new friends. They’re four quite different loners, who happen to be in the same camp and at first don’t really know what to do with each other.
Finally during the big adventure parcours they start discovering each other’s strengths. But the parcours isn’t the only obstacle: apparently a Waldschrat lives in the forest. A mystical creature, a shapeshifter, who lives in the deep woods and stubbornly, defends its territory. Only the bravest of the brave manage to get past it. „Nonsense“ the girls think at first. But maybe there’s some truth about it after all?

When writing and directing “The Wolfpack” I wanted to create a memorable cool gang of kids, with characters we can all see ourselves somehow represented in. It’s a story about friendship and bravery, about discovering each others strengths and weaknesses. I think nothing can bring us as close together as sharing our fears and secrets. And nothing feels as strong and exhilarating as overcoming them together. “The Wolfpack” is as much fun and adventure as I could fit into 15 Minutes. I hope you enjoy it.
