In the early 1800’s, a group of fur trappers and Indian traders are returning with their goods to civilisation and are making a desperate attempt to beat the oncoming winter. When guide Zachary Bass is injured in a bear attack, they decide he’s a goner and leave him behind to die. When he recovers instead, he swears revenge on them and tracks them and their paranoiac expedition leader down.

The crew along with Captain Henry are faced with guilt and fear he is coming to haunt them. At one point even the indians believe he is dead. Zack survives the ordeal and uses his wits to survive.
