- QUICK TAKE:
- Documentary: A year in the life of a mama bear and her two cubs in the wilds of Alaska is chronicled.
- SKY is a female grizzly bear who awakens from her long hibernation and begins a long and arduous trek across the Alaskan wilderness to find food for herself and her two cubs. Her male cub is named SCOUT, and he is curious and adventurous. Her female cub is named AMBER, and she tends to stick much closer to Sky and not get into too much trouble as they journey to a distant shore in search of fish.
Along the way, though, they encounter three main enemies. There is a dominant male bear named MAGNUS, who is bigger and stronger than pretty much all of the other bears around and often bullies his way at the various feeding grounds. There is a rogue male bear named CHINOOK, who has been banished from most of the feeding grounds for being a troublemaker. He has his sights set on Sky's two cubs as possible food sources. So, too, does TIKAANI, a scheming wolf who seems to be tracking the momma bear and her young.
Sky also has to deal with the elements as she looks for a place narrator JOHN C. REILLY calls the "Golden Pond." There, the salmon are extremely plentiful and Sky can feast to the point where she builds back up enough fat to last her through another hibernation in which she will provide nourishment for Amber and Scout.
