Taking place during one of the most chaotic polar seasons in history, 11 women from the Arab World and the West struggle together to reach climate change ground zero: The North Pole. Facing wild challenges – from Russian helicopter crashes and moving Arctic sea ice, to punishing frostbite and open leads of water – an unlikely story of resilience and global citizenry emerges.
As the Arctic polar ice cap melts, reaching the North Pole has become increasingly dangerous. But an expedition of women from the Arab World and Europe, led by explorer Felicity Aston, have set an audacious goal of skiing to the North Pole. Filmmaker Holly Morris and an all-women crew document this daring and unprecedented group as they navigate everything from frostbite and polar bear threats, to sexism and self-doubt in an intimate story of resilience, survival and global citizenry — in what may be the last-ever over ice expedition to the top of the world.
