After being pushed off their land, the Browns, a family of nine, travel deep into the Alaskan bush to build a small shack where they will all sleep. They have lived their whole lives in the wild and often go six months without seeing an outsider.
The Brown brothers are tasked with building a one room cabin for the family. After being in the bush for several months, the boys journey into town for supplies and are eager to find prospective companions.
As the Browns race to finish their cabin, temperatures plummet and an illness hits the family. Their ability to survive the winter rests on the brothers as they race to get essential supplies and complete the home.
A confrontation on the Browns property shuts down production and forces them to make a big decision.
After facing unparalleled obstacles, the Browns reflect on their past year of living in the Alaskan Bush while providing surprise revelations about the family's lifestyle.
