SYNOPSIS

Meek’s Cutoff. The year is 1845, the earliest days of the Oregon Trail, and a wagon team has hired the mountain man Stephen Meek to guide them over the Cascade Mountains.

The group become lost in the dry rock and sage, and soon face the scourges of hunger, thirst and their lack of faith in each other.

When a Native American wanderer crosses their path, the emigrants are torn between trusting their guide or a man who has always been seen as the natural enemy.
