Story: Trio of films with a wildlife theme. In 'The Bear' (1988), a bear cub is orphaned and has to look after himself until he is adopted by an adult bear of a different species in this unusual film by Jean-Jacques Annaud, which took several years to film. But the bears' happy life in the wild is threatened when hunters decide to track them down. In 'Running Free' (2000), Lucky is a young colt born on a ship taking horses to work in the copper mines of Namibia. When his mother dies in the harsh labour conditions, Lucky is rescued by a young orphan stableboy named Richard (Chase Moore), and the friendship that develops between the pair gives them both the strength to stand up to the cruelty of their circumstances and make a bid for freedom. Filmed on Africa's Skeleton Coast, 'Running Free' features beautiful photography and was written by Jeanne Rosenberg, the writer of the classic horse-and-boy tale 'The Black Stallion'. Finally, in 'Fly Away' (1996), after spending nine years apart, 13-year-old Amy (Anna Paquin) and her father Thomas (Jeff Daniels) are finally reunited. But things don't go smoothly at first, and while Thomas spends all his time testing a lightweight aircraft he has built, Amy finds solace with the geese nesting in a nearby lake. When developers then threaten to displace the geese, Amy volunteers to lead them on their migration by flying in Thomas' aircraft.
