With a 15-meter-long sailing yacht, two German filmmakers travel from the southern tip of South America around Cape Horn through the Drake Passage to Antarctica and back. In January 2003, during the Antarctic summer, Claus Dürscheid and Alexander Schüler made a trip to the Antarctic. The film was created from the unforgettable impressions and pictures of this voyage. They talk to the inhabitants of the seemingly hostile continent, researchers and tourism employees who work there and explore the flora and fauna of the southernmost continent.
