It is the year 1871. Nineteen survivors from a failed expedition drift south on an ice floe off Greenland, battling the elements, one another and themselves ...Yet, it is not the brutal cold or lack of food that worries Second Mate Roland Kruger; it is his commanding officer, Tyson, whose judgement reeks more of the bottle than of good sense. As the castaways struggle over their diminishing resources in increasingly bleak conditions, they resort to their basest instincts and turn on one another. And Kruger finds himself rival for the affections of a woman who cannot love him, while he senses a shadow falling over the rest of his life ...
