Brutal cold forces two Antarctic explorers to leave their team of sled dogs behind as they fend for their survival.
Based on a Japanese expedition to the South Pole in 1958, in which the party was faced with extreme weather conditions.
All right, Coop. A hundred and five degrees. What do you say?
Charlie Cooper: 1-0-5? I can go more.
When Jerry returns to chain where are the dogs were left, he notices one link broken. Then he gives the chain a quick jerk. The chain appears to be buried only a few inches deep. After 176 days and a severe storm, the chain would be buried much deeper.
Dedicated to the Antarctic explorers and their dogs whose courage and spirit inspired this film.
