Yuki is a 10-year old girl living in an orphanage, until she is adopted by Mr. and Mrs. Iwabuchi. Yuki's new stepsister Sanae is a nice girl who has a heart disease.

Mr. Iwabuchi runs a construction company and he is planning to build a research center in Hokkaido. When Mr. Iwabuhi and Yuki get lost in the snow, Ryuuta saves them. Ryuuta is Ainu and thinks that mainland Japanese people are invading Hokkaido and he hates it.

One day Yuki finds a church. She sees a sculpture of Mary and thinks it looks like Mrs. Iwabuchi. The clergyman and his wife find out that the cross that Yuki has is that which Akarupa made for his daughter. Akarupa is an Ainu man who made the sculpture of Mary, too. Hearing about the sculpture from Yuki, Mrs. Iwabuchi asks Yuki how Akarupa lives.

Mr. Iwabuchi's company goes bankrupt due to a betrayal of an employee. Mr. Iwabuchi has a second house in Hokkaido and he wants to move there. Mrs. Iwabuchi disagrees with his plan and she leaves them.

In Hokkaido, Yuki and Ryuuta see Mrs. Iwabuchi and Akarupa talking. Akarupa has a gun. Yuki and Sanae finds an old photo. Mrs. Iwabuchi and Akarupa are in it with a baby. Seeing the photo of them together, Sanae passes out. Yuki thinks the baby could be herself. Mrs. Iwabuchi doesn't know Yuki is her real daughter until Ryuuta tells her.

The house where Yuki lives gets fire. Akarupa saves Sanae from the fire and is terribly burnt.

The clergyman tells Yuki and Sanae that Akarupa is Yuki's real father and Mrs. Iwabuchi is her real mother. Akarupa dies in the hospital. He leaves the last statement to Yuki that she should forgive her mother and live together. Yuki tears it up before his grave. She leaves home to escape from the sadness.

Yuki meets Kijima in a distant town.He is arrested by the police. His younger sister, Kumi, is blind.

Mrs. Iwabuchi comes back to see Yuki and Sanae. Yuki asks her what she wants, but Sanae looks happy that her mother has come back. Yuki forgives her mother. James comes to see Sanae. Sanae's real mother, Isabella, was American, and her grandfather is still alive. Sanae goes to the US with James.

Kijima escapes from the police and proves that Mr. Iwabuchi's company went bankrupt because an employee cheated Mr. Iwabuchi.

When Sanae comes back to Japan with her grandfather, Mr. and Mrs. Iwabuchi and Yuki meet them in a restaurant in Tokyo. Sanae's grandfather is a billionaire and buys back Mr. Iwabuchi's house in Tokyo. He gives up living with Sanae because he sees how strong the ties of the Iwabuchi family are. He decides to go back to the US, taking Kumi with him to find a way to cure her eyes. Yuki decides to go back to Hokkaido alone.
