The film depicts a trek of settlers of German and Austrian-Hungarian origin on their way through a sparsely populated part of Canada. The Group travels in 1899 from Ashcroft, British Columbia to Dawson City, following the Klondike Gold Rush.
Variety's Alissa Simon described the film as an "involving, naturalistic period piece" and an homage to "late-era Western". She also appreciated the cinematography for portraying the landscapes as "ruggedly majestic".
Cine Vue's Patrick Gamble praised Nina Hoss for being "her usual captivating self" who convinces the audience she lived through a variety of strong emotions "without even flinching a muscle" but he also stated her performance was squandered because the plot offered "little in the way of entertainment or palpable suspense".
