A well-known reporter is to write an article about otarks - creatures that appeared as a result of scientific experiment the purpose of which was to check what a creature with artificially enhanced thinking abilities would be. They were bred from bears originally. But the experiment went wrong: otarks could crack logarithms and Einstein's theory but they were inhuman, they had no pity, compassion, friendliness. In the long run the reporter witnesses the ruin brought upon the local farmers, otarks hunting a girl,and hears a lot of blood-curdling stories. The otarks kill the forester, and eventually besiege the reporter in the abandoned building of the laboratory where the experiment began long ago. The film is about the responsibility of scientists and, probably, about the nature of a human being. It is positive that reason and thinking ability do not make a creature a "human being". The film is almost forgotten, but not rightly so. It is worth seeing.
