Synopsis by Mark Deming
A family anticipating a reunion is thrown into desperate circumstances in this Western adventure shot on location in Alberta, Canada. A woman is escorting her two children and her sister across the country to Colorado aboard a stagecoach when the stage is ambushed by a strange group of Indians. It turns out that the Indians are actually bandits in disguise, and the party is left stranded in the attack. The family must find their way to civilization through the wilderness, while the bandits scour the woods looking for their would-be victims. Corbin Bernsen, Brion James, and Sonny Landham play the bandits, while Charlotte Ross, Vivian Schilling, Corey Carrier, and Mercedes McNab play the family left to fend for themselves. Charles Napier appears as one of the stagecoach drivers, and Graham Greene plays an Indian who befriends the lost travelers.
