An animated fairy tale about a clash of two very different worlds, a search for one's identity, and the power of love and authority (based on the book by Dino Buzzati). The extraordinary story begins with the disappearance of the royal son. Tormented by longing, Leoncio – the ruler of the Sicilian bears – sets off with his subjects to the land of man in search of his descendant. The good intentions of the ruler, however, are misunderstood by the humans, who – driven by lust for power and greed – attack the newcomers. In a world full of magical characters, a struggle for love, influence, and power begins.
