After a fatal earthquake destroys his home in the rainforests of Peru, a young bear makes his way to London in search of a new home.

Although Paddington's amazement at urban living soon endears him to the Browns, someone else has her eye on him: taxidermist Millicent Clyde has designs on Paddington's rare Peruvian hide.
