Placed in a virgin planet, these two androids face difficulties and face treachery as they face problems that come with humanity.
On the same article that comes with the press release, the director states as to why he chose this story
“I’m always searching for new frontiers in the sci-fi genre and have found a true original in Raised by Wolves—a wholly distinct and imaginative world, full of characters struggling with existential questions: What makes us human? What constitutes a family? And what if we could start over again and erase the mess we’ve made of our planet? Would we survive? Would we do better?”
