In the Antarctic Winter of 1911 - waiting to assist Robert Falcon Scott in his bid to conquer the South Pole - three extraordinary men decided to amuse themselves with a side-expedition to Cape Crozier. The point was to test a theory by collecting and studying the incubating eggs of the Emperor penguin. They set out into the perpetual winter dark hauling two sleds with a combined weight of over 700 lb.

Everything went wrong.
