A visual representation for the Latvian lullaby sung in the background.

While the bear parents are away looking for berries and honey, the baby bears stay at home with the sheep. The bear cubs have a good time playing with a ball of yarn, but soon enough the cubs find themselves all tangled up, and everything is turned upside down! Luckily the sheep help them put everything in order again. The film is based on the traditional Latvian lullaby ‘Hush Hush Little Bear’.
