Plot: This wild-eyed "western of the North" is the tale of one man's transformation from fisherman to vigilante, forced by honor to stand alone against Russian pirates. It was the early 1900's, and Alaska was proving itself to be the last of the American frontiers. Men and women of all backgrounds raced to make a better life for themselves in this virgin territory, while others strove to rob its riches and claim its beauty as their own. Jim Kimmerlee (Fonda) just wanted to make an honest living off of the rich Alaskan salmon fisheries. He was about to find out, however, that whether in friendship, love or war, frontiers are neither easily forged nor soon forgotten.
