A journalist joins his two friends for a 280-mile trip through Ukraine to rescue a bear that had been all alone stuck inside a small cage. It turns out that this bear’s sanctuary had been impacted by the war.

Masha spent the majority of her life as a circus animal, touring and performing for audiences. It’s sad to think about Masha’s difficult past in the circus. Wild animals do not belong in circuses. Cruel circus practices include beatings, harsh training methods, and performance requirements. These animals spend their lives in small cages. Due to these harsh conditions, these animals suffer shorter lifespans and mental disabilities. However, before the war, she had been transferred to a sanctuary where she could live out the rest of her life in freedom.

After a long journey, Masha was finally returned to the sanctuary where she belongs, all thanks to these three kind men who decided to travel hundreds of miles to her rescue.
