Once upon a time there was an itch. It scratched itself and was suddenly transformed into a bear who wasn´t there before. The bear finds a piece of paper that says, "Are you me?" - "Good question," he thinks to himself and sets off on a journey to find out ...
fun and thoughtful quest for identity that celebrates the joy of (self-) awareness while encouraging us to view the world with openness, curiosity and serenity.

"This complex topic is brought to life using simple means and a whole lot of zest, making it an experience sure to please children 4 and older as well as adults."
