In an epic story of breathtaking scale, Bears showcases a year in the life of a bear family as two impressionable young cubs are taught life’s most important lessons. The world outside is exciting — but risky — and as the season change, the brown bears must work hard to find food while staying safe from rival male bears and predators.
