The Yukon Gold Rush, 1899 . Belinda and Frank stand at the threshold of a new life; a new century in lawless Dawson City but only if they can escape the horrors of their past. Who are these people, what chases them, and will the law find them? Fractured and poetic, Rush asks whether escaping your past only makes it haunt you all the more.
