When the innocent Alfie suddenly turns into a white, fluffy werewolf on the night of his seventh birthday, he doesn’t know what’s happening. The shy boy struggles to deal with himself, because his wolf part is capable of doing very different things at night than the boy would ever do during the day. Will he be able to accept himself for who he is?
Little Alfie has no idea what is happening to him when, on the night of his 7th birthday, he changes into a white, fluffy animal: a little wolf. When the light of the full moon hits, he jumps out the window of his little room, to be free. He runs through the park and the neighbour’s yard, happily chasing ducks and chickens. When daylight comes, he returns home, dead on his feet, to wake up a few hours later as a boy. His foster brother Timmie thinks it’s awesome and names him ‘Alfie the little Werewolf.’ The sensitive Alfie doesn’t want to be a little werewolf. He is afraid his foster parents won’t want him anymore when they find out who he really is. Alfie wants to keep his secret whatever it takes. But can he succeed ? There is a full moon at least once every month after all…
