A prospector (Kirk Harris) packs up his 12-year-old son (Ryan Ballance) to help him work his small claim in the gold fields of 1870s California. However, as the harsh elements cost the miner his grasp on reality, can the youngster save him from himself...to say nothing of predatory bushwhackers and hostile natives? Michael Madsen, John Savage, Yvonne Delarosa co-star. 90 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
