Synopsis“Togo” is the untold true story set in the winter of 1925 that takes you across the treacherous terrain of the Alaskan tundra for an exhilarating and uplifting adventure that will test the strength, courage and determination of one man, Leonhard Seppala, and his lead sled dog, Togo. When a deadly epidemic strikes the town of Nome, Alaska and the only cure is more than 600 miles away, the town looks to champion dogsled trainer Leonhard Seppala (Willem Dafoe) to help transport an antitoxin serum. Seppala turns to Togo, an unassuming, undersized and aging Siberian husky, to be his lead. His wife (Julianne Nicholson) has championed Togo since his days as a mischievous puppy who could dig himself out of any situation, literally and physically, and Seppala, having observed Togo’s loyalty and tenacious spirit, knows Togo offers his only chance of surviving this mission. Undaunted by the massive storm heading their way or pressure from his wife not to go, Seppala and Togo set out on the deadliest leg of what becomes a larger relay involving multiple mushers, facing gale force winds, 50 below zero temperatures and little to no visibility. It is an intense journey that causes the veteran musher to grasp the depth of his feelings for his lead dog and the unbreakable bond they share. Some flashing lights sequences or patterns may affect photosensitive viewers.

Based on an "untold true story", Togo centres on the dog of the same name who became somewhat of an unknown hero following the 1925 serum run to Nome. Also known as the Great Race of Mercy, the serum run involved a transport of diphtheria antitoxin by dog sled relay across Alaska, meant to save the town of Nome from a dangerous epidemic.
Following the race, Balto, the lead sled dog on the final stretch into Nome, became quite the canine celebrity. The same cannot be said for Togo, who displayed a lot of courage and leadership during the race and had a huge contribution to the serum making it to its destination.
Hopefully, the movie, which chronicles Togo's heroics alongside handler Leonhard Seppala, will finally do him justice. Togo's handler, Leonhard Seppala, is portrayed by Willem Dafoe, who you might know from acclaimed movies like Platoon, The Last Temptation of Christ, The English Patient and more recently, At Eternity's Gate.
