A Woman's Survival At The South Pole
13 June 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

ICE BOUND (2003) ***1/2 Dr. Jerry Neilson is a physician who heads to the South Pole (Antarctica) to medicate any of the workers there who get injured. Upon arriving, she has to adjust to the interpersonal work setting before her and living in close proximity to the researchers (limiting personal time for herself). As she adjusts to the new surreal environment in which she has entered, she discovers and informs her fellow group that she has breast cancer, and that she may die if she doesn't get appropriate treatment from the United States. Another problem is, a plane only travels to Antarctica once every year to take people home. As she waits to depart, she finds comfort in her newfound friends, and hope through their willingness to help her.
