Somewhere in northern Iceland, a little girl sees a polar bear arrive on a strike, exhausted from fatigue.

What is it doing there, so far from its natural environment? How could he swim to the Icelandic coast? Did he voluntarily exile himself from the far north of Greenland because of the melting ice? The animal is shot and killed. Two others followed in a few weeks and experienced the same tragic fate. Is this further evidence of global warming?

A prominent researcher, Mitch Taylor, opposes this idea. According to him, on the contrary, reducing the ice pack could improve the condition of bears. From Alaska to the far north of Canada, we go in search of the truth.
