Storyline

After his father's death, innocent Martin Bishop is left with nothing financially. He is however left with his father's belief that "if a man loses everything but still chooses to do what's right, then he's lost nothing at all", a belief to which Martin clings. He decides to head north to take a job on one of the Great Slave Railroad's remote construction crews, working as its timekeeper, the person who keeps the records of hours worked for payroll. Martin quickly learns of the rampant corruption at his camp, led by the sadistic foreman, Fisk, who orders Martin to inflate his hours worked, and keep on the payroll those men who he has banished from the camp in order to pocket their wages. Those banished men are left to fend for themselves since they are provided no means of transportation out and have no money.

Not going to win a Genie but...
19 September 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Any one who has moved to the north at a young and innocent age and worked for a boss who's motives are not always pure will understand this movie. People who have not lived here may find it a stretch, but anyone who has met an elder who doesn't speak any English, anyone who has "dump-ster dived" because they couldn't afford groceries, anyone who has felt at times trapped by the remoteness of this land, will understand this movie. Unfortunately, not enough care is taken explaining the culture, the remote location, or the characters in the movie and so unless you are privy to the inside joke, you may very well miss a good story.
