Togo (film) The untold true story of one of the greatest sled dogs in history. In winter 1925, 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 to help transport an antitoxin serum. Seppala turns to Togo, an unassuming, undersized, and aging Siberian husky, to be his lead. Undaunted by the massive storm heading their way or his wife’s urging him not to go, Seppala and Togo set out on the deadliest leg of what becomes a larger relay involving multiple mushers, gale-force winds, subfreezing temperatures, and little to no visibility.
