Sean and Jessie are not content with the search effort for their father so they set out on their own. During their search they encounter a polar bear assists them with their efforts. But they are followed by a poacher Colin Perry (Charlton Heston) who has intentions on capturing the bear.
Best part of story, including ending: Not necessarily the storyline, it was nice that despite his reservations, Sean was willing to look passed it and search for his father.

Best scene in story: When Jessie and Sean decide to continue the search on their own.

Opinion about the main character: I liked the fact she was willing to do whatever it took to find their father.
