WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The story of an everyday murder and a mythic bear. Angela is a solicitor's clerk. She works with the defence team during criminal trials. It's a job that brings her face to face with the fall-out from anger, rage and desperation; and face to face with people accused of GBH, rape, armed robbery and murder. In the cells under the Old Bailey, Angela meets her client. He claims to be innocent. "I didn't do it," he says "It was the bear". Without quite knowing how, Angela finds herself hunting the bear. Until she discovers the bear is hunting her.
