Based on the Oregon Trail computer game that we all grew up with and loved. The Trail to Oregon follows a family of five as they make their way from Missouri to Oregon in 1848.

Amy, a soon-to-graduate biology PhD student, is almost ready to submit her cancer research work. Meanwhile at a conference, her mentor finds out that a heavily overlapping work was recently published, rendering Amy’s hard work no longer usable. She is now forced to start over on a new project and seek outside funding. Getting scooped isn’t a rare occurrence in science, but what happened to Amy might be more than a simple coincidence. A free preview will take place Thursday, May 19.
