César Cascabel and his family have made enough money to return home to France from California. Unfortunately their trip east is cut short, when all their money is stolen. Their only option is to return to France by traveling west, via Alaska, the Behring Strait and Siberia. Along the way, they encounter a Mr. Sergius (a Russian) with his companion Kayette (an Alaskan native) both of whom join the band on their trip west. However, Mr. Sergius has a secret which may jeopardize the safety of the family when the reach the Russian frontier.
