The candy lived in the open. He felt the good and bad of the breeze.
One day, when the wind was blowing particular hard, the candy met a wrapper who offered him protection from the ever changing winds of fortune.
The candy knew he’d miss the breeze, but his cheeks were chapped and so he joined with the wrapper and closed himself off to the outside world.
At first, life inside the wrapper was absolutely marvelous. Each morning the candy woke up in an ideal state of comfort.
Anywhere the candy went, no matter how exotic, conditions remained ideal. The wrapper loved the candy and the candy loved the wrapper.
But eventually the candy’s definition of ideal changed and he began to fidget, which made the wrapper squeeze tighter.
Inside the wrapper, the candy knew he was mostly happy, but also knew he was mostly shut off from the world.
What the candy didn’t know was what to do next, because with each day he grew more comfortable, he also grew more constrained.

Ext. A majestic arctic ice shelf. A male and female polar bear (bi-polar bears) walk side by side through the lightly falling snow.
We move in closer to see that the larger, male polar bear, Paw, is not happy. Making the entire mood bad.
It was not that far. We easily could have made the swim, ate a few seals and been back to our ice shelf by tomorrow.
Would you just drop it Paw? I didn’t want to spend another night out. That should be enough.
Enough? Enough of what!? I’m starving. Woo.. what’s this?
The two polar bears have spotted something and abruptly change gears. The entire mood is now happy.
It looks beautiful.
Paw, disgusted but happy, is spitting out what little bit of the frozen material he could bite off.
It tastes.. well.. terrible!
PATSY & PAW
Suddenly whatever it is they found seems to come alive. The entire ice is rising around them. They scamper backward and see…
Wait.. that did not taste like a whale…
Our two arctic beasts have stumbled upon a submarine and now stand eye to eye with two soldiers peering through the windows.
