Synopsis

A young woman seeking to understand her mother’s disappearance joins the ranks of a ragtag group of misfits and scientists who serve at McMurdo Station in Antarctica. Amidst janitorial duties, never-ending daylight and subzero temperatures, this lonely and rugged bunch finds an escape from the world and a home for one another. A striking and luminous story about why we run away and what happens when we finally come face to face with what we’ve been running away from.
