Synopsis


College student Hana falls in love with a "wolf man." Their love is con-summated, and Hana gives birth to two babies. The older child, a girl, born on a snowy day is named Yuki for "snow," and the younger child, a boy, born on a rainy day is named Ame for "rain." These two small children harbor a big secret—they are "wolf children" who are both human and wolf. To hide the fact that Yuki and Ame are "wolf children," the family lives discreetly in a quiet corner of the city.
