Folk tale. Set in the midst of a bitter Norwegian winter, this is an enchanting story about a brave young woman. A White Bear visits a peasant family promising great riches if they allow their daughter, Tove, to come and live with him. She travels with the Bear to his castle where she discovers that he is a bewitched Prince. They fall in love but are separated. On a quest to save him, Tove encounters eerie hags, the four winds and dangerous trolls.
