A badly planned polar expedition in 1912 led to the Russian ship The Saint Anna to be locked into the ice of the Kara Sea. After almost two years trapped in the ice, navigator Valerian Albanov and 13 men decided to trek 235 miles across the ice floes in the hope of being rescued. The play charts this journey.
