Meet the Barks family, homesteaders who have rejected modern living in favour of living off the grid and maintaining a prairie lifestyle in a remote region in Canada. For years, they have embraced a pioneer lifestyle, sustaining themselves by running a trapline and trading animal meat and fur for basic life necessities.
Togetherness has always been the key to survival for patriarch Randy, his wife Tara and their three sons, Dale, Shane and Kole. This winter, one thing's certain: Dale and Shane's perilous 90 day journey and rite of passage to manhood will test the entire family's perseverance, faith and strength. Will the boys survive or die trying?
Now, separated by hundreds of miles, the two depleted camps will struggle to endure the winter as Dale and Shane undergo their transition from boys to woodsmen. But in a place isolated from the rest of the world - two days from the nearest hospital and at the mercy of the harsh weather - every day will bring with it new challenges and dangers.
