Performers, Cast and Crew:
A Native American trapper is drawn into a bitter showdown when an unscrupulous miner attempts to take over the rights to his gold-rich, yet sacred, Alaskan lands.
In Nome, Alaska circa 1899, half-breed Hudson Ipsehawk is the owner of a plot of land, rich with gold, that is near a small town ruled by the heinous Sean McLennon. When Ipsehawk turns down McLennon's offer to buy the acreage, he is bullied and beaten by McLennon's thugs. Then Ipsehawk kidnaps Sean's girlfriend in retaliation, which results in a game of cat-and-mouse through Alaska's wilderness -- with deadly results...
