Six months after the death of his wife, Jake Barnes is attempting to put the painful past behind him with a new life for himself and his children in Quincy, a remote seaside village in Alaska. A former commercial airline pilot, Jake is doing his best to support his family by flying supplies to some of the more inaccessible locations in Alaska. In the midst of a heated family discussion with 13-year-old Jessie and 15-year-old Sean, Jake is called upon to fly emergency medical supplies to a tiny village. En route, his plane crashes in the high Alaska range, prompting his concerned children to personally embark on a rescue mission. Initially at odds with each other, Jessie and Sean soon find that they must learn to work together if they are to survive in the wilderness. With a poacher hot on their trail, Jessie, Sean, and the polar bear cub they've rescued brave the elements, encounter formidable obstacles and ultimately learn profound lessons about mankind, nature and the importance of family.
