A movie about a bear that has never happened before. Many scenes were filmed for the first time. The interior of the lair, feeding the little ones, we take part in their release into the world, their first walks and climbing trees. This is a true nature thriller – a documentary story with an unusual artistic form but based on scientific research. The bears almost lose their lives when they meet a powerful male who cares for their mother.

We will also see a chilling encounter with a pack of wolves, a dramatic fight for loot or a hunting for Tatra chamois. It is an epic by the ruler of the Carpathians who is slowly losing the remnants of his kingdom.
