In a remote corner of the Arctic, a pilot whose plane has crashed is stranded in the wilderness, where he uses nothing but his ingenuity to survive. When he's finally about to receive his long-awaited rescue, an explosive accident means his opportunity is lost and the dire situation further complicated. The tragic turn of events, involving another crash survivor, forces the pilot to make a perilous choice between the relative safety of his camp and a deadly trek into the unknown.

'Arctic tells this story of self-reliance and survival with such austerity and absolute integrity that the results are breathtaking' - Owen Jones, The Observer
