In 1881, twenty-five men sailed from St. John's, Newfoundland towards Lady Franklin Bay in the high Arctic to collect scientific data. Three years later, six survivors returned, with a story of shipwreck, starvation, mutiny and cannibalism. The film reveals the nearly unbearable pressures experienced by the members of the expedition.
