Storyline

Simon Jackson is an awkward 15-year-old who lives on a planet light years away from the "in" crowd-until a life changing moment. Attacked in the British Columbia wilderness, Simon is rescued by a rare white Kermode bear. When he learns these magnificent creatures are endangered, that only 400 are in existence in a small area of northern BC, Simon turns from shy, stuttering daydreamer to political activist. Mustering his courage, he takes on the powerful forest industry and the provincial government, eventually rallying everyone from Prince William to the Backstreet Boys. Simon ultimately secures the protection of 2500 square miles of Princess Royal Island-one of the largest land protection battles ever won-and is named one of Time Magazine's "Heroes for the Planet."

A great story of a boy's fight to save a unique type of bear
12 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why hasn't this excellent film shown up in theaters and/or on TV in the US? This is great storytelling with an urgent message of how we are losing so much of our natural resource treasures to greed and unbridled development. The cinematography of the British Columbia rain forest and encounters with the Spirit Bear are remarkable. The film is not, however, just a pretty picture. We follow the difficulty of convincing people who have economic interests in development that some things are worth preserving. Having been involved in conservation projects myself, I find the inclusion of the hard fight to win over the public to a conservation cause very close to the mark. Well done! Hope this film gets the play it deserves.
