Set in a northern small town (shot in Timmins, Ontario) MY ANIMAL is about Heather (Bobbi Salvōr Menuez), an outcast teenage goalie, who longs to play on the hockey team of her small northern town. She meets and falls in love with newcomer Jonny (Amandla Stenberg), an alluring but tormented figure skater. The girls’ relationship blossoms despite Heather’s struggles with her alcoholic mother, her hidden sexual orientation, and a familial curse that transforms her into a feral wolf under the full moon. Heather and Jonny’s secret tryst soon clashes against the conformity of their small community, exposing dangerous truths and igniting a passionate, violent night of personal transformation.
