Emerging from their den at the onset of spring, two grizzly cubs begin the seasonal cycle of hunting and foraging.
Follow the journeys of two grizzly bears from Yellowstone National Park. One is a mother who struggles to protect and teach her tiny cubs, and the other is a young male who fights for survival in a valley full of wolves, black bears, and bigger grizzlies. Shot over the course of three years, this program features spectacular footage and includes rarely seen behaviors, such as fighting grizzlies, hunting bison, and attacking bull elk.
