Renovations are underway at McMurdo Base in Antarctica and part of the old library is going to be torn down. As soon as the last section of the building is destroyed, the workers make a grisly discovery embedded in the ice is a remarkably well-preserved corpse.
Reporter Samantha Sam Bloodworth takes it upon herself to try and solve the mystery of the ice man, dubbed Mr. X. Sam discovers that a scientist flew out of the valleys 27 years ago and was never heard from again. She heads out to the valleys to find out what research he might have been working on and uncovers a possible motive for Mr. X s demise. But as Sam heads back to McMurdo and radios ahead that she knows what happened, she discovers she may suffer the same fate as Mr. X.
