Theresa is a brilliant 15 year-old girl who has been taught to believe that she is the most important person in the world, a prophet. She grew up with Mr. Wolf, the only person she has ever known. One fateful day he announces to her that “the world is coming,” and that they will be separated. We discover that he had abducted her year ago. Theresa finds herself returning to a world she neither recognizes nor wants any part of, to a father who never gave up hope, and a mother who did. “Mr. Wolf” is about how we deal with unspeakable loss and how we navigate complex relationships. But it also might just be about how a brilliant young girl comes to discover her real self.
