Out in the wilds, an aged man tells his grandchildren a tale of his own youth. After his mother dies, his usually-absent father, whom he barely knows, takes him into these same wilds to hunt for a grizzly. They find a mother bear with two cubs. The hunters capture the cubs, but the grizzly captures the lad. Somehow, boy and bear bond and trek across the forest with dad and a First Nations friend on their trail. After a while, the boy figures out where he and his new mother are going: toward her cubs. Rifles, dogs, hunters, bear, cubs, father, and son are headed for a rendezvous.Written by
Unbelievable as this fictional movie may be, this is an action packed adventure that will keep your attention to the end! The relationship between the boy "Harry" and the bear is original and convincing! Such wonderful acting is given so little credit (in fact no mention at all that I have noticed) by the "Critics". If nothing else gave this movie color and amusement, the sound track alone would make it interesting!
(Note: Some strong language & violence, however, W/O blood & gore!).
