American logger Sean Vann attempts to build a new logging operation in the frozen forests of Siberia. Vann has been logging in Russia for 17 years and landed a contract to log the world’s largest forest in Siberia. Vann looks to American loggers who are experiencing a recession and convinces a group of men from Montana and Oregon to leave the forests of America and seek their fortunes in the sub-zero ground of Siberia. where they must work side by side with a Russian crew.
Jared Fitchett is 31 and lives with his family in Libby, Montana. He has been a logger man and boy, working from an early age in his family's logging business. In 1998 the business came under a lot of financial pressure. So at 15 years old, Jared left school and began logging full time on his dad's crew in a bid to help them save their house from repossession. Jared eventually took over the company and he currently employs his dad and brother. But running a small logging operation in Montana is tough and Jared's company is now only scraping by. He has loans on his equipment and needs a steady paycheck to keep everything from going under.
Despite being terrified of going to Siberia, he sees the opportunity as a way of saving what he has in Montana. But Jared has never been away from home and his wife Sharlyn and baby daughter Mercy. It's a huge risk going to Siberia as he may lose his business, but Jared is willing to take that gamble to keep the business in the family and a roof over their heads.
