As the Arctic polar ice cap melts, reaching the North Pole has become increasingly dangerous. Yet and expedition of ordinary women from the Arab world and the West strap on skis and haul heaving sledges toward True North, against all odds and polar advice. Award-winning filmmaker, Holly Morris, captures it all, from frostbite and polar bear threats, to sexism and self-doubt in this intimate story of resilience, survival and global citizenry-on what may be the last-ever expedition to the top of the world.
