TRUE WOLF is the story of Koani. With the help of her human companions, she became an ambassador for her species traveling the country to help raise awareness about wolves. This film is about how one wolf changed lives, particularly those of Pat Tucker and Bruce Weide. Together, they presented 1,400 programs about wolves to 200,000 people. Bruce and Pat faced the painful truth that they could not provide for her greatest need – to be free. As Koani proved time and time again, she was a wolf and wolves belong in the wild. Through 16 years of archival footage, supplemented by interviews, re-creations, and stunning wolf footage, this contemporary film explores the polarized and contentious period before, during, and after the United States made the historic decision to return wolves to the homelands from which they’d been exterminated in the Northern Rockies.
