After a remote diamond mine collapses in the far northern regions of Canada, an ice driver leads an impossible rescue mission over a frozen ocean to save the lives of trapped miners despite thawing waters and a threat they never see coming.
After the sudden collapse of tunnel six in the Katka Mine of Canadas Manitoba, killing eight miners and leaving twenty-six more unaccounted for, it falls to the seasoned big-rig driver, Mike McCann, to deliver a vital, 30-ton, 18-foot gas well-head and 300 feet of pipe up there in under 30 hours. Composed of Mikes aphasia-stricken brother, Gurty, the veteran truck driver, Jim Goldenrod, and Jims brilliant ex-employee, Tantoo, the hand-picked team has to brave the elements and travel across the thin ice road of a frozen lake in April that can shatter to pieces at any moment. However, neither the ice cracking under their wheels nor the arctic blizzards can compare with the challenges that await the drivers ahead. Can the truckers make it to the mine in time?
