Synopsis

2000 Miles of Hell

It broke the wagons
It broke the horses
It broke the men

A grim incident from American pioneer history is recreated as a determined group of settlers, facing almost insurmountable odds, struggles to reach California in 1846.
Already divided by internal dissension over the choice of a leader and the selection of a route, the wagon train is soon decimated by Indian raids, a scarcity of food and water and the unrelenting forces of nature. Finally, after months of hardship, the party reaches the High Sierras, only to be stranded in the middle of the pass by an early snowstorm.
And as fear of an agaonizing death from starvation forces the abandonment of conventional rules of human behaviour, the pioneers face a new enemy each other.
