In THE RIGHT WAY, friendship is once again put to the test as rat and bear go hiking in the open, as-it-were unspoiled countryside, at the mercy of the elements and all kinds of miracles - and, above all, at the mercy of themselves. With pure hearts and loads of goodwill, they try to find reasons for all they see and experience. Spontaneously they sometimes find themselves getting closer than expected to the right way.

"In the epic style of an age-old tale, the film traces the path to understanding: the profound, melancholy, but also the comic realization that every "right way" is also a wrong way (and every wrong way also a right way)."—Patrick Frey, Parkett Magazine
