It is snowing in the vast Alaskan landscape and a young girl is slogging her way home. Suddenly, she meets a weak and hungry polar bear. The poor bear needs her help, so she approaches him carefully but tenderly, giving him all that she has to offer -- a blanket and fish from her morning excursion. Although the girl's blanket is too small, the gesture is large. Afterwards the two new friends head out to play. But then a snowstorm hits, and the bear repays the girl's kindness and safely shepherds her home. Before each reunites with their parent, they share one last embrace -- creating a lifelong memory of their unique bond born of mutual respect and open hearts.
