Three children facing the epic powers of Arctic wilderness, whose existence is threatened by blizzards and polar bears. A thrilling story about survival on a deserted island.

13-year-old Julia and her twin siblings, 8-year-old Sindre and Ida, born to military parents, have moved to a small town. It’s hard to adjust to a new environment and when Sindre gets into a school fight, the twins run away to the nearest army airbase. Desperate to reach their father, who is working in Southern Norway, they secretly jump aboard a helicopter flying in his direction. Unfortunately, the helicopter changes its route and soon they find themselves lost and alone on a deserted island. They have to conquer fear and dangerous situations: wild animals, raging weather and lack of food. But they are quickly learning something all children love: How to master challenges.

“I took my team to Svalbard which is pretty far north. You go with snowmobile for 5, 6, hours way out from the only habitated area up there. /.../ I really wanted to show the Arctic for real, not pretend. /.../ Not only kids but the adults also were really fascinated by my bringing real nature into a film like that. The images are quite spectacular.” (Grethe Bøe-Waal)

In 1989, the very idea of a competitive all-female sailboat crew was nearly inconceivable to the manly world of open-ocean yacht racing. They’d never make it to the start, much less survive to the finish. Tracy Edwards proved them wrong. The 26-year-old skipper, her second-hand racing yacht Maiden, and her seasoned crew became the first-ever all-woman challenge to the Whitbread.
