Coming 2013 - The true story of Alaska's great race against death, told for the first time in a non-fiction feature documentary. In 1925, in the depths of one of the worst winters on record in the arctic, 34 men, and over 150 dogs, raced life-saving serum across the frozen wilderness, to save the children of Nome from a deadly outbreak of diphtheria. The story was a cause celebre in a country at the cusp of the modern age, yet still fascinated by the romance of the frontier. The way the story was covered by the newspapers of the era, and the myths and legends that have been handed down by generations, have made it one of the most enduring and gripping American legends of all time.

The film is narrated by Sir Patrick Stewart and directed by Daniel Anker. Support to date has been provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Rasmuson Foundation, the Iditarod Historic Trail Alliance, the Atwood Foundation, the Alaska Humanities Forum, the Bering Straits Native Corporation, Dr. Mary Totten, Gana-A'Yoo Ltd., and the Gottstein Family Foundation.
