Description

Eight champion huskies awaken one Christmas Eve night to Santa's sleigh full of goodies. But they aren't receiving presents yet. The man in red needs help with one final stop. Nome, Alaska, is last on the list and the heavy snow is not letting up. With Rudolph's nose out of power, someone else will have to guide this sleigh tonight.

In the spirit of Alaska's state sport, this night before Christmas tale is all heart and determination. Nome has been saved by sled dogs before, so it is no coincidence that Santa chooses this pack of pups to brave the arctic weather. It took 150 canines to rush lifesaving serum to the town during the 1925 diphtheria epidemic. But with the blinding snow, the ice, and the overflow, can Santa rely on only eight? It's a tongue-flapping, tail-wagging adventure as this team tries to save Christmas for one deserving group.
