Join us for a Q&A following the showing with director Tommy Hyde!

Hardscrabble, Vermont dairy farmer Doug Butler has an offbeat passion: dog mushing. A local folk hero, Doug trains his team of mutts on the family farm with a dream to compete at the world dog mushing championships in Alaska. But the demands of being a small-scale family farmer in a changing world are constant. Keenly aware of the fate of the other family farms that used to dot the landscape, Doug has managed for years to play one creditor off against the next to survive another season. But with the debt now insurmountable and Doug’s thoughts plunging into depression, his dogs offer solace...and perhaps a way out. On a cold March morning Doug pulls out of his driveway in a rusted-out truck carrying 22 dogs, bound for Alaska. The journey will prepare him for what he’ll confront when he gets back: the sale of his farm and a race to craft a new destiny.
