What Happened to the Wolf?
Moe is a wealthy, married businesswoman with a recently diagnosed terminal illness. Following a suicide attempt, she is sent to the hospital, where she meets Way Way, a young and rebellious fellow patient. While Moe worries about her businesses and fears her impending death, the carefree Way Way spends her days daydreaming and listening to rock music. As the days pass, the two women are increasingly drawn to each other and bond over their everyday struggles.
Set in contemporary Myanmar, this idyllic film portrays a tender romance between two women, a rare narrative in a country where queer people face state persecution. In stark contrast to everyday life in today’s Myanmar, director Na Gyi sensibly and courageously captures a simple story of life and living.
