It is 1950 on the island of Hokkaido, Japan. G-san, who lives in a charcoal burnerís hut in the Hatenashi Mountains, hears an animal crying nearby. Startled and frightened, he stokes up the fire. At another time he thinks he hears wolf howls where the forest is dense, sees the leaves shaking and then hears a low growl from the unseen creature.
