description

Grey (Lauren Beatty), an indie singer, whose first album was a smash hit, gets an invitation to work with notorious music producer Vaughn Daniels (Greg Bryk) at his remote studio in the woods. Together with her girlfriend/lover Charlie (Katharine King So), they arrive at his mansion, and the work begins. But Grey is having visions that she is a wolf, and as her work with the emotionally demanding Vaughn deepens, the vegan singer begins to hunger for meat and the hunt. As Grey starts to transform into a werewolf, she begins to find out who she really is, and begins to discover the family she never knew. What will it take to become a great artist and at what cost to her humanity?
