Good things often come in little packages, as young Omri (Hal Scardino) discovers when he receives a present from his friend Patrick, a plastic Indian figure that comes to life after Omri locks him in his toy cupboard. Little Bear (Litefoot), an Iroquois Indian from 1761, opens up new worlds of thought, experience, and tolerance to young Omri. A few disastrous experiments with other toys in the cupboard and Patrick's insistence on receiving his own living toy reveals to Omri that the toys have feelings just as he does, no matter how small their stature. Frank Oz (BOWFINGER) directs from a script from Melissa Mathison (E.T.).
