The Arctic Ocean Hydrographic Expedition, accomplished in the beginning of the 20th century, between 1910 and 1915, led to the last great geographical discovery in the history of the world: the discovery of the Severnaya Zemlya (back then the Emperor Nicholas II Land) and was the first to accomplish the passage from East to West by the Northern Sea Route, from Vladivostok to Arkhangelsk. In Soviet time, the story of this expedition was ignored or falsified. The film is based on unique material: journals of participants of the expedition, their memoires and photos made during the trip. All this material plunges the spectator deep inside the dramatic story, full of suspense.
