Based on the international bestseller by Erik Fosnes Hansen and set in the years 1912-1937, The Lion Woman tells the epic and beautiful story of Eva who is born with a body fully covered with hair. Despite the many challenges she is faced with due to her appearance, she manages to face and overcome them all. Her exceptional intelligence takes her from a small railroad station community to the bright lights of Paris. An emotionally gripping and fascinating story in the tradition of The Elephant Man and Mask.
