A Daring Rescue...or a Deadly Risk? Ever since Josh`s older brother died, his father has been drinking too much and taking his anger out on Josh. But when he orphans a bear cub on a hunting trip, it`s more than Josh can stand. Josh insists on bringing the defenseless cub home-only to find out he must surrender it to game officials. Knowing the cub will be given to researchers, Josh makes a defiant choice. Taking only his brother`s motorcycle, the cub, and his dog, Josh runs away to the mountains, vowing to stay until the hunting laws are changed. But the mountains hold unexpected menace, and Josh`s bid for Justice soon becomes a battle to survive.
