Lapa, a little bear, is jealous of the attention his mommy is giving his new sister, and no one will take him seriously. He heads out to find his “real” mommy. But the butterfly, deer, goat, and duck all tell him he already has a real mommy of his own. When his mommy saves him from a snake, Lapa understands who will always care for and protect him: his mommy!
