Synopsis

Talu, a half-caste born of an American father and an Eskimo mother, is torn between life with her Eskimo chief husband, Lanak, and the excitement that she imagines exists in Nome, the nearest town. Captain Jones, a ruthless trader whose ship crashes into the ice near the Eskimo settlement, takes Talu to Nome in spite of his first mate's objections: Duke fears retaliation from Lanak. In Nome, Jones mistreats Talu, who sings in a saloon and wishes she were back in the settlement. Duke, having fallen in love with Talu, attempts to help her return to her husband, but Jones shoots him, forces Talu into a sled, and makes a break for it with Lanak in hot pursuit. They encounter a chasm and are thrown into a deep canyon. Jones is killed immediately; Talu, fatally injured, dies in her husband's arms.
