True western survival story following Indian massacre.
Ten years before Custer’s Last Stand in the Big Horn Mountains of Montana, Sioux and Cheyenne Indians led Captain Fetterman and 80 troopers into a trap and massacred all in the Wyoming-Dakota Territory. What followed was a fort under siege on the first day of the worst snow storm of the century, where temperatures dropped to 40-below zero; and two civilian workers volunteered to ride horseback more than 250 miles for help in one of the most unbelievable survival stories in western history. Based on a true story. As a movie, this would be a cross between The Revenant and Man in the Wilderness.
