The heroes of the film are three bear cubs from the cult painting by Ivan Shishkin Morning in a Pine Forest. Have lost their painter mom the three brothers Henry, Vincent and August happen to appear in Paris, in the city of every creator. All attempts to earn their living as artist fail. Their impressionistic collies wont be acknowledged. Under cover as circus lions the bear cubs travel back to Russia to find the heritage of their mom.
