College student Hana falls in love with a 'wolf man' and gives birth to two children – Ame and Yuki. After her husband's death she decides to raise her children closer to nature and moves to the countryside. Here she faces the problems of providing for a family as a single mother while her children grow up as both humans and wolves.

Mamoru HOSODA, born in 1967, started his film career in 1991 as an animator for Toei Animation. A few years later he decided to become a director and in 2006 he joined Madhouse where he directed his first animated movie THE GIRL WHO LEAPT THROUGH TIME. In 2011 he launched his own studio, STUDIO CHIZU, in order to create WOLF CHILDREN.
