In this full length, action-packed adaptation of the classic adventure story, precocious Mowgli grows up believing he’s as fierce a wolf as any of the members of his pack. When he learns he is actually a human, he must discover how to reconcile these very different identities, and decide whether to remain with the pack, or return to the human world from which he was born. What will he choose? And will he be trained in the Law of the Jungle in time to defeat Shere Khan, the most feared animal of all?
“Monica Flory’s script is both scrupulously faithful to Rudyard Kipling and completely original in its approach. While Kipling’s story is basically a grand adventure, this version takes its subtext-a boy’s quest for identity-and makes it the heart of the piece. It includes all the book’s action and even some of its dialogue, but increases the emotional resonance.”
