Angela is a solicitor's clerk. She's working with the defence team on a murder.

In the cells under the Old Bailey, she meets the defendent. "I didn't do it" he says “The Bear did it. I saw it.”

He's obviously lying. Or mad. This is London after all. But Angela does some digging and she finds someone else who saw the bear. Without quite knowing how, Angela finds herself hunting the bear. Until she discovers the bear is hunting her.

Angela Clerkin and Guy Dartnell tell the story of an everyday murder and a mythic bear. A funny, challenging and beautiful show about disavowed anger and how to survive a bear attack.
