A free-spirited young woman, eager for adventures
away from her dreary 1870s New England home, sets sail for the
arctic on a whaling ship. The last thing she expected to find
were the affections of the ship's rough-hewn skipper. Even
after she allows herself to indulge in the passion she also
feels towards him, she is still unsure whether the seaman can
be trusted. But when disaster strikes the ship, their love for
one another may be the only thing that can save them!
