Against The Odds

Endurance: Surviving Antarctica | Obsession


In March 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton works to put together a crew of twenty-eight men to sail from England to Antarctica. It was a new continent untouched by humanity that only the most adventurous men dared to explore—men who yearned to be the first to see what no other person had.  

Shackleton wants to be a part of the first group of men to cross the entirety of the frozen continent. He’s already reached the icy continent before, but now, he plans to conquer it.

Exactly 100 years later - three descendants of the crew will attempt a feat Shackleton could not achieve… reach the South Pole. The only problem is that they’re unprepared for the challenges that Shackleton's Antarctica will throw them.
