Abandoned as an infant in the wild, a young boy is raised by wolves. Discovered in the forests of northern Minnesota at the age of 10, the boy begins the difficult process of learning what it is to be human. Under the tutelage of Dr. Hoagland (John Randolph) at the University Research Center in California, the boy becomes a man (Kevin Brophy) and dubs himself Lucan. The mysteries of his past gnaw at him, and Lucan sets out to discover the secrets of his heritage and his true identity. The dangers of civilization far outstrip that of nature, and Lucan must rely on the instincts and abilities he learned while running with his wolf brothers and sisters. Slowly gathering clues, Lucan's quest is interrupted by a crime at the research center - a crime for which he is unjustly accused. Now a fugitive, Lucan must stay one step ahead of the lawman (Don Gordon) pursuing him while he still looks for answers. Guest stars include Ned Beatty and Stockard Channing.
