After a long winter of hibernation, Bear emerges from his cave famished. Being wary of humans, Bear travels closely along the waterway and becomes snared in an inhumane animal trap. Floppy, a forest rabbit, hears Bear’s desperate cry for help and rushes to find the farmer’s son Davie trying to free Bear. Davie has a special gift when it comes to animals and gains Bear’s trust, bringing him back to the barn to rest and regain his strength with Floppy’s assistance.
