In an epic struggle of man versus the elements, Shackleton leads his team on a harrowing quest for survival over some of the most unforgiving terrain in the world. Icy, tempestuous, seas full of gargantuan waves, mountainous glaciers and icebergs, unending brutal cold, and ever-looming starvation are their mortal foes as Shackleton and his men struggled to stay alive.
What happened to those brave men forever stands as a testament to their strength of will and the power of human endurane.
This is their story, as told by the man who led them.
