I am so shocked by this documentary. Usually, this wouldn't be something that I would watch, but I'm drawn to WW2 era stories and history.

The story follows Misha Defonseca as she tells her story of survival during WW2 to a local radio show back in the 90's. Everyone was extremally riveted by her tale of living with the wolves in the wilderness as a seven year old, while she searched for her parents who were "Deported."

The popularity of her story took of when a publisher came to her and convinced Misha to write a book about her experiences. When Misha started acting strange and has a terrible falling out with her publisher, the publisher starts to wonder if Misha's tale is actually true.

I loved how the documentary starts to unravel discrepancies behind Misha's story. You never want to think that someone who claimed to be a holocausts survivor would be making it up, but some stories are to good to be true.

I would really recommend watching this show. Its on Netflix right now and it will give you all the feels from rage and anger, to sadness. It was done well and tells an amazing story.
