Widowed father Leonhard steps in the midst of a diphtheria outbreak in his small dock town to safely deliver the anti-toxin to the hospital. With his own child's life on the line, Sepp battles the impossible, accompanied by his sled dogs.
Rex ReedFull Review Good The Great Alaskan Race is the vigorous, heartbreaking film about that true story that will leave you cheering. The unfailing spirit of survival is captured along with the excellent period costumes, sets and even makeup (the frostbites look too real for words) that are rare for an independent film with a limited budget. Not a perfect film, but breathtaking enough to linger in the memory.
