The Kamchatka Peninsula. A land of legends. The ultimate wilderness on earth. Kingdom of the bears. A mother and her two cubs, a young teenager and a big male are living their bear’s life in the most unbelievable settings, a craze of raw nature. The mother bear has one obsession only: to protect and nourish her cubs who, themselves, think only about exploring the world
with the recklessness and naivety of youth. The young adolescent bear has to find his rank within the adult world, wandering in quest for a territory. The big male must constantly defend his supremacy and territory, with all his strength, struggle against the relegation and the aging that lurks behind. They cross paths or part away in the course of their adventures in the heart
of nature before meeting again for a grand final, spectacular, when millions and millions of salmons are swimming upriver. Bears’ survival depends on them.
