The lives of two childhood best friends, Bill and Epstein, in the late 1890s as they flock to the gold rush capital in the untamed Yukon Territory. This man-versus-nature tale places our heroes in a land full of undiscovered wealth, but ravaged by harsh conditions, unpredictable weather and desperate, dangerous characters including greedy businessmen, seductive courtesans and native tribes witnessing the destruction of their people and land by opportunistic entrepreneurs.
Based on actual events from the last great Gold Rush in history, a stampede of fortune seekers make their way to the Klondike boomtown of Dawson City where murder, revenge, riches and redemption await.
It's every man for himself as food and supplies run low and winter takes hold of the Klondike. A murderer stalks the miners at their claims while Dawson is plagued by Typhus. Belinda double-crosses Bill in a bid to stay competitive with The Count.
Bill finds the murderer and seeks revenge; The Count goes after Bill's gold; the Tlingit participates in a nighttime raid; Bill and Meeker confront death in the wilds.
