Abstract:

Ten students from across North America set off on an expedition of a lifetime, camping, not on land, but on the frozen ice of the Arctic Ocean. Their goal is to experience one of our planet's best-kept secrets and to learn how people can live in harmony with the natural world. We witness how they foster a new understanding and respect for the planet and for each other. In this way, viewers will not only be left with the excitement of the journey, but with insight on how the members of the group gain fresh perspectives, connect with the natural world, and increase their awareness of the earth as a global ecosystem. After their initial meeting, when the trekkers arrive at the Arctic and discover how cold it can be, they navigate the cracks in the ice as they blaze a trail across the frozen ocean; at the ice flow edge, they remain on polar bear alert; during a storm they see some unexpected wildlife; they experience a traditional seal hunt; study climate change in North America and the impact of global warming; then as the ice beneath them begins to melt, the travelers face a dangerous journey home, where they share their final thoughts on their adventure.
