What they say about it!

“a rich work and further sign of a great, imaginative talent, bolstered by an ethereal animation style that, like the storytelling, is deceptively simple and prone to moments of detailed beauty.” Josh Slater-Williams, Sound On Sight

Synopsis

When Hana falls in love, it feels like a fairy tale. She starts a family and produces two beautiful children – Yuki (Snow), a girl, and Ame (Rain), a boy. But the family harbours a secret – their father is a 'Wolf-Man', half human and half wolf, and has passed his affliction on to his children. The family try to reside discreetly in a quiet corner of the city, but their joyful life is shattered when their father passes away. To live peacefully, Hana must make the difficult decision to move Yuki and Ame to a small town and surround them with nature.
