Private Project

The Good Wolf

Made on a micro-budget, The Good Wolf is a coming of age story about a fugitive named James played by Vic Trevino (Pee-wee's Playhouse, American Me) with an unknown past hiding in the woods. There, he comes across a treehouse, where he meets Sam, a 12-year-old boy.

The two become an unlikely pair of friends and spend the summer together surviving and learning from one another. As the summer comes to an end, police begin to get closer to finding James's whereabouts, leaving James with limited options of survival, and the right decisions are not so obvious.
