Film details


Set in 1845, during the earliest days of the Oregon trail. A wagon train of three families has hired mountain man Stephen Meek to guide them over the Cascade Mountains. Claiming to know a shortcut, he leads the group on an unmarked path over the high plain desert, only to become lost in the arid rock and sage. As food and water run low, tensions emerge, and the group's faith in Meek and in their own ability to survive is sorely tested.
