Mia gets hired as a personal assistant in an old, grand mansion. The mansion is on an island, and a ferry connects it to the mainland, trafficking only twice a day.
The job seems strange. Mia’s duties include heating up the mansion and cleaning up its numerous rooms – all except one. The tasks get weirder by the time.
One night Mia enters the forbidden room. It turns out that a massive, gigantic bear is trapped in the house. Mia starts to secretly befriend the frail and sick bear, and finds strange comfort in its presence. Mia’s relationship with the bear turns into a power play, and she has to face the toxic presence she has been herself in her past relationships.
