Garrett (Jesse Montgomery Smythe), 12 year old boy has to travel with his recently divorced journalist mother (Jamie Lee Misfeldt) to remote Alaska. One day while out playing, he saves a young orphaned wolverine from drowning in a river. The two quickly develop a deep bond.

They fight a deadly grizzly bear, brave raging rivers, survive an avalanche and do battle with a crazed bush pilot bent on wolverine-poaching. Garrett knows that he will have to eventually return One Paw to the wild. The day finally comes when Garrett and his mother most return to civilization. Has One Paw become too domesticated to survive on his own?
