A team of nine scientists embark on a journey to Antarctica. Their choice of transport: a small sailboat. This story is an intimately human account of what it means to live and work alongside one another under relentless conditions, set within the wider context of rapidly advancing global change, impending habitat destruction and the current zeitgeist of environmentalism.
