Description
Information
In 1914, as the shadow of the First World War falls over Europe, a party led by veteran explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton sets out to become the first to traverse the entire Antarctic continent. Their initial optimism is short-lived, however, as the ice field gradually thickens, gripping their ship Endurance and slowly crushing her, marooning all twenty-eight men on the polar ice. In a breathtaking, seemingly endless struggle against the elements, Shackleton leads his team on a brutal quest for survival in the most unforgiving environment imaginable. Freezing, treacherous seas of gargantuan waves, mountainous glaciers and icebergs, relentless cold and ever-looming starvation all conspire against the team staying alive.
