A missing father. A desperate search. An unforgettable adventure.
Jake Barnes and his two kids, Sean and Jessie, have moved to Alaska after his wife died. He is a former airline pilot now delivering toilet paper across the mountains. During an emergency delivery in a storm his plane goes down somewhere in the mountains. Annoyed that the authorities aren't doing enough, Jessie and Sean set out on an adventure to find their father with the help of a polar bear which they have saved from a ferocious poacher. Conflict ensues.


**Actually pretty good, one of the better wildlife/animal family films of the 90's.** Definitly ALOT better than for instance THE AMAZING PANDA ADVENTURE which was released the year before, with some perfectly fine acting from even the kids one of which is Vincent Kartheiser who would later become one of the main stars in the tv series ANGEL. The other is Thora Birch, she might not be as good as Vince but she was okay at least. Would have worked as purely a survival film but they had to throw in some baddies in it as well, one of which is played by Charlton Heston the father of the director of the film Frasert C Heston. I'm not saying that they weren't okay baddies or anything but sometimes less is more as they say. But still as a family adventure film in the veins of the stuff Disney did in the 90's it's most certainly above average.
