Mikas the Bear lives only with his constantly-working mom Rita and has never seen his dad. Every day after school Mikas and his best friends – the energetic squirrel Sonata and the pessimist cat Gabriel – meet at the Milkshake Bar. One day at the bar the friends unexpectedly come across the photo of a bun-eating champion bear who looks an awful lot like Mikas. Perhaps that’s Mikas’ dad?
The friends begin organizing The Great Milkshake Bar Championship in hopes of finding the legendary champion – and perhaps even Mikas’ dad… Although the enigmatic bear from the photo never shows up at the championship, Mikas builds a closer, more sincere connection with his mom, and becomes the new Milkshake Bar champion.
