"Mamoru Hosoda has had a solid career so far. He's covered a variety of subjects and each film has been released to critical acclaim. What could he tackle next? Well, Wolf Children is the tale of a single mom, essentially. A woman who's raising her two children in the best way she can despite the world being against her. And it's harder than you'd think, because these two children are part-wolf."
