Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
The agony and ecstasy of the Last Race on Earth comes to the screen as filmmaker Vikram Jayanti follows legally blind twenty-three year old Rachael Scdoris while she trains to race in her third Iditarod. A 1,100 mile dog sled race set against the snowy backdrop of the Alaskan wilderness, the Iditarod takes fifteen days to complete and isn't for the faint of heart. Fortunately, despite her handicap, Scdoris is more than up to the challenge. The man serving as Scdoris visual interpreter in the race is Joe, a noted Iditarod champion in his own right. As the viewer becomes better acquainted with Scdoris and her family, we witness how the racer's inspiring tenacity and courage helps her to remain focused despite the distractions all around.
