Synopsis

Dramatization of the still-controversial journeys of world-famous explorers Dr. Frederick Cook and Lt. Robert E. Peary, each of whom claimed discovery of the North Pole after trekking through the Arctic wasteland together and separately in the first years of this century. Peary ultimately emerged as a hero and Cook dishonored and discredited. This version was seen through the eyes of Cook, from his own written accounts that are the basis of I.C. Rapoport's teleplay.
