Synopsis:
Selma, 12 and Elliot, 6 are in summer holiday in an old house by the forest. Selma is jealous of her little brother, because he is getting more attention from Mother.

In the forest behind the house, there are wild animals. And in the evening, Selma tells Elliot that the neighbor has seen a bear just near the house. Selma watches Elliot’s growing fascination for the forest, at the same time as she is yearning to get rid of him, since she always has to look after him. One evening she tells him again about the bears, and deliberately feeds his fascination. That night, Elliot sneaks out into the forest. Selma realizes that he is gone and has to look for him. Running around in the dark and scary forest she realizes that she really loves him…
