In the heart of the Arctic wilderness, one of the most relentlessly inhospitable environments in the world, the native Inuit people have survived for over 5000 years. As the landscape irrevocably changes, they have learned to adapt to stay alive.
Journeying into the Arctic with his father and a film crew, Sam Branson explores the changing landscape and the lives of the native people who survive there. Sleeping on frozen seas and encountering majestic polar bears, Sam and Sir Richard embark together on a wintry expedition due to a shared love of adventure and a real concern about our future in a world where the climate is changing rapidly.
It is a journey which Sam must ultimately complete on his own, finding new depths of resilience and courage in a formidable and breathtaking landscape.
