Plot Synopsis

For years, the Barks family has embraced a pioneer lifestyle in Northern Saskatchewan, sustaining themselves by running a trapline and trading animal meat and fur for basic life necessities. Togetherness has always been the key to survival for patriarch Randy, his wife Tara and their three sons, Dale, Shane and Kole. This winter, in this one-hour reality series, their entire world is about to change. The two eldest sons, 20-year-old Dale and 19-year-old Shane, embark on an epic, 90-day journey hundreds of miles away from home while surviving the wilderness on their own, as they try to complete their rite of passage to manhood. Together they battle the elements, forage for food, establish their own trapping area and attempt to overcome the myriad dangers that surround them in the untamed landscape. Meanwhile, Randy, Tara and their youngest son Kole must adapt and learn to survive the sub-arctic winter without their eldest sons. Now, separated by hundreds of miles, the two depleted camps struggle to endure the winter as Dale and Shane undergo their transition from boys to woodsmen.
On Tuesday, June 16, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT, Discovery premiered the season finale of SONS OF WINTER. In the season ender, "End of Days," Randy begins having second thoughts about calling his sons back home, but health concerns with a family member force the boys to make a painful decision.
