This animated movie, featuring the popular children's characters, begins with orphanage manager Mr. Cherrywood telling a story about the Care Bears. In it, a young magician's assistant falls prey to an evil spirit intent on destroying all happiness in the world. It is then up to a group of Care Bears, including Friend Bear and Love-a-Lot Bear, with help from a couple of orphans, to stop the spirit using their caring powers.
