While a renowned English hunter Bill Goodfellow attempts to hunt down a pack of wolves near Kilkenny, his daughter Robyn befriends Mebh, a mythical wolfwalker, whose spirit can transform into a wolf. This delightful 2D animation is set in 17th century Ireland, and its story offers a nice mix or personal drama, Irish history and folklore, and pure fantasy. The film's visuals are a breath of fresh air alongside all the identical looking 3D animations.
