More About This episode

In a battle against time, money, sub-zero temperatures, and unforgiving waters, cargo ship North Star makes a 1,600-mile journey from Tacoma to Anchorage. Join captain Richard Cadigan and his committed crew as they put their perfect on-time record, not to mention their lives, on the line to deliver everything from food to pick-up trucks to the people of Alaska. To complete their mission, they must overcome perilous obstacles, one delivered by Mother Nature, the other by a failing diesel engine.
