Sometime after the Ice Age young hunter loses his older brother. In rage he kills the bear he blames for the death, which tranforms him into a bear. Disney’s spiritually charged 2D animation is an entertaining if rather forgettable children’s film. It offers a moving story and some comic relief in the form of a talkative cub Koda.
