A sequel to Paddington in Peru, this film follows Stephen Fry as he returns to Peru to start a breeding programme for spectacled bears.
Stephen sets up a blind date for Yogi, the bear he rescued earlier, who he finds is now flourishing in his new environment. And he intends to rescue other suffering bears from as far afield as Chile.
Stephen’s mission takes him deep into the Amazonian rainforest, where the conservation of the Spectacled Bear is set amid scenes of devastated nature. The story is crafted with the usual entrancing mix of Fry whimsy and profundity.
