Based on his own successful 2007 short Dennis, Mads Matthiesen's award-winning Teddy Bear is an intense piece of cinéma vérité-style realism, showcasing a strong cast comprised of both amateur and professional actors. Contrasting both Danish and Thai cultures, this emotional drama plays with viewers' expectations, preconceptions and prejudices as it examines different aspects of love, and the search for happiness.

38 year-old Dennis is a painfully shy bodybuilder who still lives at home with his overbearing mother. When his socially awkward uncle marries a girl from Thailand, Dennis is inspired to do likewise. Quickly thrown into the seedy underbelly of Thailand's sex tourism scene, he nearly gives up on finding a bride of his own. When a visit to a local gym turns into an unexpected night on the town, however, Dennis finds that there may be hope for him yet.
