Shackleton, Scott, Amundsen. Three men battling across the high Atlantic plateau. Battered by shrieking blizzards, skin blackened with frostbite, eyes burning with snow-blindness. Three ambitious, driven men. Facing agonising decisions. Risking failure and death. Each desperate to be first at the South Pole. But there can only be one winner.
