POLES APART

Nanuk, a tough female polar bear, and Aklak, an enthusiastic male grizzly bear, are brought together by their changing habitats. The lack of food in a melting Arctic has left the solitary Nanuk desperately hungry. When the hopeful and eager Aklak crashes into Nanuk's world, she has to decide if the naïve grizzly bear is her food or her friend.
