Storyline

On a flight through the arctic the crew of a RAF airplane realizes a crashed soviet plane on the ice. There seems to be one survivor, but landing is not possible at the moment. Finally someone decides to volunteer and gets out the airplane to stay with the Russian survivor until help comes. Both men wait for days, but no help is in sight. They are on their own. Two different worlds, two different cultures and two different men dash against each other and around them is only the cold. Written by Oliver Heidelbach

The best movie I've ever seen!
3 March 2002 | by ayeshahaqqiqaSee all my reviews

This is a must-see for Sam Waterston fans, if for no other reason than he is in every scene. This film, more than any other, shows the range of Sam's acting ability--from confidence to despair, from determination to exhaustion. The theme of the film is man helping man, which well reflects what Mr. Waterston attempts to do in real life.
