Autumn, 1846. Two ships seeking the fabled Northwest Passage around Canada get caught in the Arctic ice.

Autumn, 1846. Over a year into seeking a passage around the north of Canada through icy Arctic seas, Sir John Franklin reckons his two ships are just weeks from success. But his dour deputy Francis Crozier fears otherwise, and a couple of deaths have started to spook the crewmen.
