A crew on a sealing vessel have only themselves to rely on in the kingdom of polar bears and storms. Until now this has been an annual ritual for the ageing skipper Bjørne and his first mate Espen. Early in the 20th century, more than 200 Norwegian sealing vessels were active. Now there's only one ship left. This film won the audience award at the Tromsø International Film Festival.
