Thirty years ago, renowned wildlife photographer, Tom Murphy embarked upon the expedition of a lifetime - he skied across Yellowstone National Park, in the dead of winter, by himself with only a blue tarp as a shelter. A life defining trip that has yet to be repeated.
At the age of 66, Tom is headed back across Yellowstone’s frozen landscape, this time with a film crew to document the journey. The expedition will once again take him across the most remote and inaccessible parts of the park. He will be pushed to the brink of his endurance and the trip will test his years of backcountry experience.
This film will document his journey across the park as well as explore Tom’s life as a photographer, his philosophy about nature, wilderness, and his love for the striking beauty and power of Yellowstone’s most unforgiving season - winter.
