The famous Shackleton expedition – told as never before.
In 1914, the British adventurer Frank Wild, together with the famous arctic explorer Ernest Shackleton and 26 men, sets off on the “last trip on earth” – they want to cross Antarctica. However, their ship is destroyed by pack ice, they drift northwards on an ice _oe and _nally save themselves onto an island where no one is likely to find them. While Shackleton sets off to find help, 22 men stay behind under Frank Wild’s command, in constant darkness and bitter cold. By his personality alone, Wild manages to keep the men’s faith in an eventual rescue – throughout an entire Antarctic winter, the worst prison in the world.
