Film Presentation:
După ani de temperaturi record, gheţurile arctice se topesc. În vara lui 2016, pasajul de nord-vest nu mai este blocat de gheaţă, iar vasele de croazieră ajung într-una din cele mai inaccesibile zone de pe glob. Iată un tur arctic prietenos cu mediul, pentru a vedea consecinţele acţiunilor oamenilor: o regiune a gheţii şi a zăpezii se schimbă, martor tăcut al încălzirii globale.
