They brave the most forbidding land in North America: on foot, by kayak, fording rivers, climbing mountains, scaling glaciers. Two teenagers set out to rescue their dad in a race against time and the wilds of Alaska. Moving to an isolated Alaskan seaside village after the death of his wife, urbanite and pilot Jake Barnes (Dirk Benedict) struggles to build a new life for himself with his dreamy 13-year-old daughter, Jessie (Thora Birch), and disenchanted 15-year-old son, Sean (Vincent Kartheiser). But when Jake's plane crashes in a treacherous mountain range, it's up to the kids, along with a polar bear cub, to launch their own unforgettable journey, keeping one step ahead of a ruthless poacher (Charlton Heston).

Beautiful vistas, Thora Birch and a cute bear can't compensate for the routine story and sloppy direction of this old-fashioned family adventure about the courageous efforts of two children to find their missing father.

Charlton Heston, though he has saved the Jews and a whole bunch of other distressed folk in the past, along with painting the Sistine Chapel, can't rescue his son's picture.
