In a small Canadian town, three living Teddy Bears deliver bad news. From an overdue bill, to losing a job, their 'bear hug' can make troubles vanish. After finding out she's been dumped, Madison(Sarah Gadon, "A Dangerous Method"), has never felt better – all thanks to the Bears.
Soon, Madison begins to sabotage her own life, along with the rest of the townspeople. With junkies desperate for hugs, a violent riot forces the Teddy Bears back into the woods. As the mob goes through withdrawal, Madison creates the first batch of small, furry bears, as something to get by on.
With this band-aid solution in place, the Teddy Bears arrive back with re-enforcements, only to discover they’ve been replaced.
