Widower Jake Barnes (Dirk Benedict) moves with his daughter and son to a fishing village in Alaska, and earns his keep as a bush pilot by ferrying supplies to remote locations throughout the state. While the daughter loves her new home, the son cannot stand it, and is impatiently waiting until he is grown up enough to move away. However, they join forces to look for their father when they learn that he has gone down in an airplane accident. The official search party is called off and Jake is assumed dead, but the children will have none of it, and go off on their own into the Alaskan wilderness. Along the way, they thwart a big-game poacher (Charlton Heston) and his sidekick, and learn about survival in the wilderness. A highlight of the film is its fine footage of wild Alaska.

Jake Barnes (Dirk Benedict) crashes his Piker Cub during a storm around Devil¿s Thumb in the Alaskan wilderness. His two children Jessie (Thora Birch) and Sean (Vincent Kartheiser) decide to find him themselves, when it seems the search and rescue are gong to give him up for dead. They rescue a captured bear cub earning its gratitude and the poacher¿s wrath. Between the poachers (One is played Charleton Heston, and boy is he a nasty guy!) and coping with nature there are some harrowing moments. The cinematography is breathtaking. This is a wonderful action adventure family movie that adults and children alike will enjoy!
