Sir Ernest Shackleton and his crew of twenty-seven men witness their ship, the Endurance, take a devastating blow against the unforgiving ice off the coast of Antarctica. The men will have to build camp and spend the winter on an ice floe. They’re unsure of how or when they’ll get home, but they’ll need to learn how to survive on desolate terrain.
Meanwhile, a hundred years later, Henry Worsley, and two other descendants of the Endurance crew, begin their own journey to re-create another Shackleton expedition. Henry thought their greatest obstacle was going to be the weather or the rough terrain, but he soon learns his crew must overcome an unrelenting mental battle.
