The Old West at its most rugged and dangerous.

During the Klondike Gold Rush, a small group of German immigrants travel towards the far north, hoping to strike it rich in the goldfields of Dawson City. They’ve been misled by their overly optimistic guide and are unprepared for the dangers and rigours of the journey. Beset by uncertainty, exhaustion, and conflicts, the travellers plunge deeper and deeper into the wilderness... A stark and minimalist Western by one of Germany’s best new filmmakers.
