Episode InformationAgainst all odds and polar advice, a Muslim chaplain, a French biologist, a Qatari princess and eight other women from the Arab World and the West attempt to ski across the melting Arctic sea ice to climate change ground zero - the North Pole. Director Holly Morris and her crew capture this story as the expedition navigates everything from frostbite and polar bear threat, to sexism and self-doubt in an intimate story of resilience, survival and global citizenry. The 2018 team featured in the film remains the last-ever to reach the North Pole.
