Ted Brooks (Gooding Jr.) is a Miami dentist who travels to Alaska to receive his inheritance. But instead of wealth, he discovers he's been left a team of snow dogs - Diesel, Scooper, Nana, Yodel, Sniff, Mack, Duchess and Demon – all of whom are unimpressed with their new master.

When crusty local mountain man Thunder Jack (Coburn) encourages Jack to return home so that he can claim the dogs for himself, Jack sucks up the courage to train himself as a musher, enter the Iditarod (the famous Alaskan dog sled race) and prove he's not just a city slicker.

Based on Gary Paulsen's book Winterdance: The Fine Madness of Running the Iditarod.
