A young woman gets the chance of a lifetime. To go to "the land of mythical tragedies, the place of ships' hulls being crushed by ice, of long journeys into darkness and death, of soles falling from feet and being strapped back on, of teeth freezing and splitting, fingers dying, toenails coming away, mates disappearing through holes in the ice, mates walking away into blizzards, saying I'm just going outside and may be some time , and never coming back ..." Surrounded by the cruel beauty of the last great wilderness on earth, she finds herself transfixed by the power of land. Travelling and living with a close-knit and idiosyncratic team, Fin learns the rules and taboos of community life in Antartica, and then promptly breaks the strictest taboo of all - she falls in love. The consequences are shattering.
