Luc Jacquet brings to the screen the story of Claude
Lorius, who set out to study the icescapes of Antarctica in 1957. He tells of
our planet's history and of our future - a future inextricably linked with
mankind's impact on our planet. A unique - profoundly human - scientific
adventure, this is the story of a lifetime devoted to pursuing the vital
secrets of existence hidden at the heart of a frozen world.
