When a pack of wolves nearly tear the prince apart, the very She-Bear he’d been hunting saves his life. As man and beast heal from their wounds, the prince starts to question his sanity as his mind twists around an impossible idea: Is he losing his mind or has he really fallen in love with a bear? Magic and mayhem, romance and the ridiculous dance hand in paw in this modern adaptation of the Italian fairy tale the Italian fairy tale from Giambattista Basile’s The Tale of Tales (Il Pentamerone, Lo cunto de li cunti) where love is the best kind of madness.
