The series, co-created by U.P. Michigan natives Seth & Nathan Anderson and producer Jason Hagen, began in 2014 as a proof-of-concept for the forthcoming feature film NORTHSTAR, which will also be filmed entirely in the Upper Peninsula at locations in Houghton, Gwinn, Norway, Iron Mountain, and Sagola to start, with other U.P. locations to be added. The story follows the early days of lone father, Alex (played by U.P. actor Nate Alwine) as he travels a rugged post-Cataclysmic North American landscape with his comatose daughter, Crystal. Along the way, Alex gives his all to protect Crystal as they come into contact with other survivalist groups challenging each other for control over the North Woods.
