A thrilling adventure through American history, it pieces together the bizarre true story of a collection of some 500 silent films. Dating from the 1910s and '20s, they were lost for over 50 years, until being discovered, buried in a subarctic swimming pool deep in the Yukon Territory in 1978. Director Bill Morrison uses this extraordinary footage as a conduit to explore the complicated past of Dawson City, a Canadian gold rush town and First Nation hunting camp that was transformed.
