Antarctic open sea whaling is booking and a territorial race for the mysterious continent is in full swing.Aboard a ship setting sail from Cape Town carrying the Norwegian whaling magnate Lars Christensen are three women: Lillemor Rachlew, who tricked her way on to the ship and will stop at nothing to be the first woman to land on Antarctica- Mathilde Wegger, a grieving widow whos been forced to join the trip by her calculating parents-in-law- and Larss wife, Ingrid Christensen, who has longed to travel to Antarctica since she was a girl and has made a daunting bargain with Lars to convince him to take her.As they head south through icy waters, the race is on for the first woman to land on Antarctica.

None of them expect the outcome and none of them know how they will be changed by their arrival.Based on the little-known true story of the first woman to ever set foot on Antarctica, Jesse Blackadder has captured the drama, danger and magnetic pull of exploring uncharted places in our world and our minds.
