The first epic crossing of the South Pole on foot, accomplished in 1989-90 by six men from different countries, is brought back to life through stunning original footage and the memories of one of them: Will Steger, legendary polar explorer, an eyewitness to the greatest changes to the polar regions of our planet. Through riveting archival footage that brings the past alive, the film is a wilderness thriller pinning us to the edge of our seats. In the present, the reflections of the septuagenarian Steger crystallize into a profound cinematic memoir, a meditation on mortality, and a eulogy for the ice.
