the story started with Hana falling in love with Ookami, a werewolf. after getting married, Hana gave birth to Yuki, her daughter born on a snowy day, and Ame, her son born on a rainy day. the four lived a quiet life in the corner of the city with the intention of concealing the existence of their werewolf-children. but when Ookami suddenly died, Hana decided to move to a rural area to raise her children alone.
without human intervention, Hana lived a happy live with her children. as Yuki and Ame grew older, they began going their separate ways. despite the nonstop conflicts during these processes, Hana eventually came to accept what her children did with their lives. the movie was rather common if not for their unusual mix of genres. unlike most standalone anime movie, this movie was compactly filled and absolutely fast paced.
