In the heart of winter, three families in the North Woods of Michigan prepare for the annual snowmobile race. Working-class lives are not easy where winters are unforgiving, jobs are hard to come by, and the line between living life and merely surviving is razor-thin. As racers and their families pin their hopes to a 500 mile-long test of endurance, small triumphs and giant sacrifices are made along the way.
