In a remote cave, a travelling storyteller recounts a fascinating tale to his young assistant. Tonio, the Bear King's son, is kidnapped by hunters in the Sicilian mountains. When the harsh winter threatens his people with famine, King Léonce decides to invade the land where the men live. With the help of his army and a wizard, he succeeds and finally finds Tonio. But he soon discovers that bears are not meant to live in the land of men. A beautifully animated fairytale that will captivate people of all ages.
