Iditarod… a far distant place

(2000) (85 min)

In a journey of challenge and courage, three mushers run the long distance Iditarod sled dog race across the Alaskan wilderness. For over a thousand miles, Mike Williams, a Yup’ik Eskimo and the “Sobriety Musher”, Lynda Plettner a 48 year-old grandmother, and Mike Nosko, a man determined to place “in the money”, brave arctic temperatures, exhaustion, and difficult terrain to find purpose and self-knowledge in The Last Great Race On Earth.
