Synopsis

Four ardently driven geologists trek out into the vast expanse around the South Pole to spend the coming summer season in below-zero temperatures and constant sunlight, pursuing signs from a prehistoric past, the warm and lush Antarctica of millions of years ago. Two prominent professors and two undergraduate students spend their days roaming the land, digging in ice and snow, in search of the smallest piece of evidence from a world long gone. While they work in solitude, isolated from the rest of the world, they live in claustrophobic proximity to each other, camped out in small tents that dot the seemingly endless landscape.
