It’s about a bear... on cocaine

When a drug smuggling operation was forced to throw the goods off the plane and distribute them in a national park in Georgia, the otherwise idyllic life in this calm place changed. After eating the cocaine, a bear falls into the intoxication of his life and begins to become a threat.

Various groups try to survive in the forest and avoid the rampaging bear. Among them are the children Dee Dee and Henry who are alone in the forest and are the first to discover the bear. After they have been away for a long time, their mother searches for them with the help of two park rangers and finds the children hiding from the bear.

Overwhelmed by the situation, everyone tries to flee from the bear. Only a group of people, including drug lord Syd White, try to find the cocaine again in the forest, which leads to bizarre situations with the bear and the police. As the plot progresses, the lives of the various characters become affected and intertwined in unexpected ways.

This is a movie that makes no apologies for trying to make you howl in laughter and disgust – at the same time. (Wenlei Ma, News.com.au)
