When President Lincoln authorizes construction of a system that will connect the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railways, a contractor and a surveyor set out to map the best route. Although they find a new pass that promises even greater efficiency than previously hoped for, the risk of attacks on workers from natives threatens to dampen the spirit of the ambitious project.
