Story: From the coldest, windiest, most untouched wilderness on earth -- and inspired by an astonishing true story -- comes this thrilling tale of action and adventure, of dogs and men, of friendship and loyalty and of the stirring spirit of tenacity and hope that sparked one of the most incredible survival stories of all time. Set against the backdrop of icy, stormy Antarctica, the film follows eight surprising heroes stranded at the bottom of the world and the one man who would stop at nothing to bring his true friends home.

The fierce Antarctic winter is just setting in when an intrepid team of explorers and scientists on a research mission -- survival guide Jerry Shepard, his best friend and cartographer Cooper and the rugged geologist Davis -- just narrowly escape a fatal accident, thanks to their steadfast team of eight skilled sled dogs. Forced to evacuate, the men must leave the beloved dogs behind in the frozen wilds -- with a promise they will return. But when the storm of the century approaches, cutting off all means of travel, the dogs are stranded. Now, as the intelligent, courageous dogs -- including noble pack leader Maya, rambunctious rebel Shorty and rising young alpha-in-training Max -- fight to make it through the most unforgiving winter on the planet, the heartbroken Jerry is driven to mount a seemingly impossible rescue mission, aided by a beautiful and adventurous bush pilot, Katie.

Held together only by unwavering bonds of friendship, the humans and the dogs alike make a remarkable journey of grit, endurance and belief to find one another again in this spectacular but perilous land.
