Carrie Stetko (Kate Beckinsale) is about to finish her tour of duty at a remote research station. But when a body is found in the tundra, it's up to her, as the sole law enforcer, to find out who the killer is, and she must do so before the entire site is evacuated due to the onset of a fierce winter storm.
Setting out to track the killer down, Carrie herself is soon fighting for her life at the hands of this ice-axe-wielding Antarctic assassin.
Can she trust the mysterious UN Agent Robert Pryce (Gabriel Macht), who seems to appear from out of nowhere? Will she be able to overcome the personal issues that still linger from an incident in her past as an agent in Miami? Or will the frozen elements, closing in with an icy fury from all sides, prove too much?
With Tom Skerritt. Directed by Dominic Sena (Gone in Sixty Seconds, Season of the Witch).
