Howl is a dark and twisted reimagining of the classic tale Little Red Riding Hood delivered in true
avant-garde style. Against doctors’ advice, Dulcina leaves the sanitarium, and heads through the
woods to Grandmother’s house. Soon, she encounters a dark and threatening Wolf, whose very
existence forces her to determine what is real, and what is not.
Dulcina, a strange young woman with a dark past, is confined to a sanitarium after trying to hurt
herself. Against her doctors’ advice Dulcina leaves to watch over her grandmother’s house, a
remote cabin in the middle of a frightening forest. As she travels through the forest, her journey
takes a twisted turn, and Dulcina loses her grasp as the lines between what is real and what is not
are blurred. When a mysterious man shows up, the once timid and fearful Dulcina gains strength,
she’s never had before. Soon she embraces the animal that has lain dormant inside her and faces
the choice of becoming victim or wolf.
