Set in the 60's, an orphaned young farm boy, Martin Bishop, sets off to make a living working as a timekeeper on the construction of the Great Slave Lake Railway in the North West Territories, where he immediately clashes with his drunken boss.

Roy plays the part of Scully, one of 'the wilder few', workers who have been expelled from the construction gang and who now live wild in the woods, scavenging on the camp's garbage.  When Martin is himself expelled for challenging the camp boss for pocketing the wages of the wilder few, he devises a plan for making his way back to town, accompanied by these outcasts.

Roy describes Scully as "a violent man who has no difficulty killing people. [...] Scully is the only character I've played whom I'd consider pure evil.  With him you never know what to expect."
