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.

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.
