How could Roald Amundsen, an unknown man from impoverished Norway, become the greatest polar explorer the world has ever seen? The answer is not just found in one single expedition, but in a dramatic and epic film about the life of a remarkable and fascinating man. Amundsen dedicated his life to the discovery of new lands. If necessary, he took extreme measures in order to achieve his goals. In turn, he succeeded in his professional life – but paid a very high price as a human being.
