|Forrest Taft works for the Aegis oil company in Alaska. Aegis company's corrupt CEO, Michael Jennings, is the kind of person who doesn't care whether or not oil spills into the ocean or onto the land as long as it's making money for him. He even makes commercials that make him look like he cares for the environment. When Taft's best friend Hugh Palmer hides a computer disk that Jennings needs to keep his company going, Jennings sees Hugh as a major threat, and has Hugh murdered. When Taft tries to interfere, Jennings tries to kill Taft, but Taft is rescued by an Eskimo woman named Masu, who introduces Taft to her father Silook, the chief of her tribe. With Masu's help, Taft begins a trek through the wilderness, heading straight for the grounds of the Aegis company.
