Episode Information

Spring is in the Tian Shan, the ‘Mountains of Heaven’ in the south of Kazakhstan, in Asia, and two brown bear cubs and their mother have just left their den. For the brothers a journey full of adventures begins, but their mother will teach them how to master life between high summits and vast grasslands. For the first time ever a film team has managed to capture the family life of brown bears in the mountains of Asia. This is a warm-hearted, authentic portrait of a bear family, their neighbours and the beauty of their rugged homeland.
