Set on a Wolverhampton council estate, Raised By Wolves is modern day reimagining of the childhood of Caitlin Moran and her brothers and sisters.Single-mum Della lives in a three bedroom council house with Germaine, Aretha, Yoko, Mariah, Wyatt and baby Cher. She is attempting to raise the children by herself, but does have visits from Grampy, who likes to come around to dispense his wisdom to his grandchildren.
Della takes the kids on holiday to Wales. Germaine and Aretha both suffer romantic setbacks.
Germaine gets asked out and premieres her 'personal fragrance' life-hack, and Della takes a trip to the 'Poor Woman's Ikea': a skip.
Aretha stuns Della with a request to go to school, prompting memories from Della and Grampy. Germaine brings her new boyfriend over.
A pregnancy scare leads Della to recruit Germaine as an intern at work, while Aretha meets a kindred spirit with sensible shoes.
Della is forced into the tertiary economy at the local car boot sale by an unexpectedly painful utility bill, while Germaine becomes cousin Cathy's unwilling assistant.
The Garrys landlady makes a surprise visit. Della evacuates the kids to their dad's while she goes emergency house-hunting.
The Garrys are taken out into nature to forage for free food, and Yoko reaches a female milestone in the bushes. Germaine has an unhealthy plan to get closer to Lee.
