This is the Iditarod, the longest and most dangerous race in the world, the Last Great Race. Run in March every year over a thousand miles of fierce, forbidding terrain, through the mountains and snowy wastes of Alaska where the wind whips relentlessly down from the North Pole.
Natu is a young woman torn between two cultures. Fiercely protective of her ancestral land, she has instead chosen to work, with her American fiancé, on the oilfields in the north. But when she hears of the death of her beloved Inupiat grandmother, she knows she must be true to her native culture and return home to her father to prepare to fulfil her dream and run the Iditarod.
