In 2018, Captain Clemens Gabriel, along with his young family and a group of modern-day explorers, set out on the adventure of a lifetime. They set a goal to cross The Northwest Passage - an Arctic ship route known for it's historic dangers and deaths. Harsh weather and thick ice have caused the route to remain largely unexplored and uncharted.

After setting sail from Fiji, Clem and his crew encountered the coldest season in quarter century. All other ships attempting the passage turned back immediately, but Clem made the shocking decision to push through and push his family and crew to brink.
