Cookie Figowitz is the cook for a party of volatile fur trappers trekking through the Oregon Territory in the 1820's, desperate to find their way to the newly created Hudson Bay Company before their meager supplies run out. As he forages for food one evening with the hope of placating the increasingly restless men, Cookie stumbles over Henry Brown, a man on the run from a group of Russians looking to settle an old score. Cookie takes Henry in, hiding him from the trappers, and the two begin an unlikely friendship that will take them from the virgin territory of the West all the way to China and back again.
