Against the Ice tells the true story of  intense survival in Greenland. The expedition takes place to disprove a theory that Greenland was actually two pieces of land. Of course, the events that followed that important piece of geographical history were deadly. The trip back to the ship that was meant to take the men out of the area took much longer than expected and was met with several setbacks. This lead to an all out terrifying battle for survival and a polar bear that was just as hungry as the expedition.

The synopsis for Against the Ice goes like this:

In 1909, Denmark’s Arctic Expedition led by Captain Ejnar Mikkelsen (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) was attempting to disprove the United States’ claim to Northeast Greenland. This claim was based on the assumption that Greenland was broken up into two different pieces of land. Leaving his crew behind with the ship, Mikkelsen embarks on a journey across the ice with his inexperienced crew member, Iver Iversen (Joe Cole). The two men succeed in finding the proof that Greenland is one island, but returning to the ship takes longer and is much harder than expected. Battling extreme hunger, fatigue and a polar bear attack, they finally arrive to find their ship crushed in the ice and the camp abandoned. Hoping to be rescued, they now must fight to stay alive. As the days grow longer, their mental hold on reality starts to fade, breeding mistrust and paranoia, a dangerous cocktail in their fight for survival. Against the Ice is a true story of friendship, love and the awe-inspiring power of companionship.

Against the Ice lands on Netflix beginning March 2.
