Summer 1898. Canada during the Klondike Gold Rush. Emily Meyer joins a group of seven German American immigrants. Together they embark on the long journey to the newly discovered gold fields in Dawson. With horses and a covered wagon, they take off without an exact idea of the dangers and strains that this journey has in store for them. Driven by a dream and the hope which it has inspired for a better life, the group works through the rough environment toward their goal, a goal that seems to be further removed from them with every step they take.
Filmed in the interior of B.C., starring Nina Hoss, directed by Thomas Arslan, co-production with Schramm Film.
