Description

An all-woman team made up of Arab and European women comes together to attempt a daring expedition to the North Pole during one of the most fraught seasons in modern times. After two years of training, the adventurers, led by explorer Felicity Aston, strap on their skis and pull their sledges true North, determined to succeed against all odds.

Filmmaker Holly Morris (The Babushkas of Chernobyl) and an all-women crew document this unprecedented journey as the women navigate everything from frostbite and polar bear threats to sexism, physical exhaustion and self-doubt, all while bearing witness to the melting sea ice. This intimate story of resilience, survival and mutual support may end up being the last-ever over-ice expedition to the top of the world.
