Discover the mysterious continent of Antarctica, the coldest, driest, and windiest place on Earth with the roughest oceans. Weird and wonderful creatures--penguins, seals, humpback whales and more--thrive here in astounding abundance. With never-before seen footage, the film brings audiences to the farthest reaches of this wild and majestic continent. What happens here affects every single one of us.

Using the latest underwater filming techniques, audiences will dive beneath sea ice, more than 6 feet thick, to experience the alien world of its seafloor. Swim alongside playful seals, soar above mountain peaks, join vast penguin colonies, and experience the largest congregation of fin and humpback whales ever filmed.

Although so remote, Antarctica and its surrounding South Ocean play a vital role for the entire planet - regulating ocean currents, sea levels and its wildlife-filled waters can absorb huge amounts of carbon. New science is revealing that dramatic changes are occurring and rapidly warming this pristine land of snow and ice. No one owns Antarctica but it will take global cooperation and collaboration to protect it and ensure the future health of our planet.
