In a magical faraway land, among pastures green and high hills, there lived carefree sheep in a cozy little village. They lived happily for many a year, until a pack of wolves arrived to dwell in an abandoned ravine nearby. Magra, the pack’s old leader announces a tournament, the winner of which would become his successor. The only wolf to challenge the bloodthirsty and powerful Earless is Grey, a lovable but not too witty protagonist of our story. To win the tournament (and the lost love of his girlfriend Bianca) Grey goes into the woods to seek the help of an old witch. The witch offers him a position of transmutation. After downing the magic concoction, Grey returns to the pack and goes straight to Bianca only to find out he had turned into a … sheep!
