Based on a true story. Its Canada 1931 and trapper Albert Johnson (Charles Bronson) lives for himself in the ice-cold mountains near the Yukon river. During a visit in the town he witnesses a brutal dog-fight. He interrupts the game and buys one of the dogs - almost dead already - for $200 against the owner's will. When the owner Hasel (Ed Lauter) complains to Mountie Sergeant Millen (Lee Marvin), he refuses to take action. But then the loathing breeder and his redneck friends goes to Albert and try to get the dog back by force, decimated they return back to town and now accuse Johnson of murder. So Millen, although sympathetic, has to try to take him under arrest - but Johnson defends his freedom in every way possible. It soon becomes not a man hunt but a death hunt as the search and kill party is enforced with trappers...tromping through the icy cold Canadian mountains. Millen doesn't want Johnson to reach Alaska and out of his jurisdiction. Will Johnson make it?
