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."

Pleased to note that the movie is now airing in the US on at least my local PBS station KBYU in Utah. Just saw it today and decided to sign up to IMDb to give a review (my personal first on IMDb) and note of well deserved encouragement for the work this movie represents. Im glad for the preservation actions to protect this rare animal. In writing this, some may think me to be an "environmentalist", etc. Which is not the case, I just like to encourage support for good things when I see them. Although I do love the outdoors and work in related industries. Keep up the good work! This is a good message which I think, if listened to, can increase appreciation of balance in the world we live in between industry and the nature and creation of life on this planet. The movie stirs the spirit towards appreciation for the natural world around us and can help one to realize, remember and appreciate things in our world before we slip to accidentally or intentionally destroy them. Such appreciation, I believe, can help prevent human regret of mistakes that can be irreversible.
