Norm is a polar bear trying to save the Arctic from a developer who wants to build houses there. Mr. Greene — oh, how cleverly ironic — is the bad guy who employs a ditzy woman to do the dirty work. She knows it’s not good to settle the pristine Arctic, but he dangles entrance to a prestigious school for her daughter as the carrot.
This is straight to video, seriously boring stuff that only the very youngest children will sit still through.
