Set in a remote village high up in the Nafpaktia mountains in western Greece, the film follows the lives of two shepherd families struggling for survival. The village, forsaken by god and man, has seen better days. Paxnis, the seasoned old shepherd with no hope left, had already foreseen the dire straits the country would be facing. Giorgos, unable to sell his goats, is weighed down by mounting debts and drinks to forget. Combining documentary and fiction, ‘To the Wolf’ is both the reality and an unsettling allegory of modern-day Greece.

This film received financial support from the Languedoc-Roussillon Region in partnership with the CNC.
