Samantha Bloodworth, reporter for the Digital Science Times, is on assignment in Antarctica. While covering the maiden flight of a unique experimental aircraft dubbed the tin kite, Sam and the pilot, Dupcheck, crash onto the ice and plunge into a deep crevasse. They re lost, they have no radio and Dupcheck is unconscious.
Freezing and trapped in the crevasse, Sam is near death. Then the famed explorer Shackelton seems to appear to help her survive against the odds. Unsure whether or not this encounter is a hallucination, Sam finds she must trust her own instincts in this deadly location to try and keep Dupcheck and herself alive until help finds them.
