Today the attitude about wolves differs broadly in Sweden, and has been a popular topic of debate for years whether or not we should allow wolves in Swedish nature.

The children carry knives when they leave the house, the farmers lock up their animals at night, and people lose loved ones. However, the villagers slowly begin to realize that the wolves they believed to be the culprits behind the bloodshed, are actually werewolves; men who turn into beasts.
