It's the 1950's and Charlie Halliday (Barry Pepper), has always considered himself to be one the best pilots to fly. Somewhat of a risk taker, Charlie's job has been to deliver supplies to the people of the Artic North. While on a routine delivery he lands to drop off supplies when the native people try to convince him to take one of their extremely sick along with him as she is in need of immediate medical attention for TB. He refuses until they bribe him with a gift of expensive ivory tusks they have harvested. Charlie agrees to talking the ailing Kanaalaq (Annabella Piugattuk), along with him. As the two head off, they are caught in a severe snow storm. When the plane crashes, each is forced to learn from and help the other in order to survive the variety of obstacles the harsh landscape throws in their path.
