"Hidden Lives: It's Not Easy Being a Wolf Boy"
9 November 2005 | by (Clown Grove, CA. USA) – See all my reviews

The documentary follows Jesus Chuy Aceves, as he wrestles with having to leave the circus and getting a "normal" job in order to be closer to his family. Chuy was born with hypertrichosis, The Werewolf Syndrome, a rare condition which causes people to be born with facial hair that covers the whole face, even the eyelids. The camera angles, visuals, and background music truly enhances this program. It has bit of humor, but it also breaks your heart as you see Chuy and his family agonize over this decision. Along the way we meet Chuy's sister, Lili, who is the hairiest female in the family. We also come face to face with Chuy's cousins, Danny & Larry - The Wolf Brothers, and Elliot, one the youngest members with hypertrichosis. We also meet Chuy's friend and mentor, Veekay the Clown. I believe you will enjoy this program. And you will agree "That is Not Easy Being A Wolf Boy."
