Season 1 — Episode 1
In this episode we meet Parsnip, a first-time grizzly mom, and her young cub, Pushki. Only half of new bear cubs make it through the season, and they are both struggling to survive in this vast Alaskan wilderness. This area is ruled by a massive male bear, Van, and his partner Alice, a prized female bear with an aggressive and sinister side. Hungry adult bears will kill cubs, so Parsnip's summer is full of unexpected adventure; she must escape Van's clutches and learn from her mistakes if she and her cub are to survive the season.
