Vokseværk (Tor Fruergaard, DK, 2014)

Fabian lives alone with his caring but controlling mother Birte. Fabian meets Felicia and falls in love for the first time. With the romance comes an extreme discovery: When Fabian gets horny, he transforms into a werewolf. Fabian needs to get to know his new "self" while convincing Felicia that he will not hurt her. In the end he must make a choice: Should he suppress that part of himself and stay with his mother, or should he embrace the new man he has become and leave with Felicia?
