Behind a small door in the back of grandpa’s house there’s a very particular hidden forest. The landscape consists in jokey birds, tiny mooses, leafs that can cure any wound, and a conflicting duo formed by a giant bear –who carries on his back a small forest he uses to disguise himself among the trees– and a hunter who is eager to avenge the wreck unintentionally caused by the bear. Jonathan and his little sister Sophie bump into this world after he locks her up behind a mysterious light blue door during a fight. As soon as the screaming stops, Jonathan realizes he has gone too far and that making Sophie go away hasn’t been a great idea considering his grandfather warned them against crossing the threshold separating the house from the forest. Avoiding the crazy hunter, Jonathan goes on to rescue his sister, who supposedly was kidnapped by the giant bear, and he will face the adventure this strange place proposes.
