It’s winter up North yet the ice seems to be melting; also, the food supply is scarce. A tough-talking, sassy polar bear (voiced by two-time Oscar nominee Helena Bonham Carter) and an aloof, enthusiastically earnest grizzly bear (voiced by Joseph May) end up in an unlikely circumstance, negotiating an unlikely rapport. Can they really be friends with each other, or are they destined to be food? 

Themes: friendship, climate change, food security, bears
