Cannibalism, vengeance, and a far-reaching cover up by British authorities serve as the lurid highlights of filmmaker John Walker's documentary tracing the adventures of Hudson's Bay Company explorer Dr. John Rae and British Royal Navy Officer Sir John Franklin. But while Franklin became a hero as a result of the pair's remarkable journey from London to the Orkney Islands and ultimately Nunavut, his partner Rae was relegated to virtual obscurity. Still, the question remains, how truthful were Franklin and Rae being when they recounted their epic adventure to gullible audiences? In this film, director Walker does his best to sort the fact from the fiction while uncovering the truth about one of history's most elaborate ruses.
