While the bear parents are away looking for berries and honey, the baby bears stay home with sheep. The bear cubs have a good time playing merry games with a ball of yarn. Soon enough the cubs are tangled up in one big ball 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” (‘Aijā, žūžū, lāča bērni’).
