    • Synopsis
    • A female bear has only just lost its baby bear and is grieving. Her partner bear steals a newborn baby from a couple of Esquimos and together they raise it as a bear. This is the story of a child who is born human but raised as a bear and who becomes a human thanks to a journey through the Great North. The story is simple and poetic and brings to life our penchant for far away adventures as well as our childhood fears.
