Synopsis

Set against the backdrop of the Canadian Gold Rush of the 1980’s, Ireland’s first western An Klondike tells the story of the Connollys: three emigrant Irish brothers from Rosmuc, Galway, who make their way to the Klondike Valley in the hope to striking it rich.
The Connollys arrival in Dominion Creek, a town built on greed, sets in motion a chain of events that leads to a deadly showdown with Jacob Hopkins, the man who runs the town.
