In March 1930 a German scientific expedition, including Inuit hunter Arqioq, vanished into the High Arctic. The fate of the German Arctic Expedition has obsessed travellers and researchers for 70 years. Recently, a team of scientists discovered a trove of the expedition's abandoned equipment on Axel Heiberg Island at 80 degrees north. Co-directors Henry Naulaq and Ole Gjerstad set out to discover the truth about Arqioq and discover a dramatic twist to the story. In Arqioq's home region in Greenland, rumours say he did not perish and may have been the only survivor of the doomed expedition. NOTE: English, French and Inuktitut versions on the DVD.
