Unexpected and empathic connections are forged that ripple into stories of transformation.

Filmed over a period of three years with intimate access to the animals, their caregivers, workshop facilitators and their spirited students, Teach Me to Be Wild captures the magic that transpires where wounded children and their Wild Teachers meet.
