But due to extreme weather conditions, the men are soon forced to leave the base, leaving the dogs abandoned. Taro, Jiro, Riki and the others will have to fend for themselves to survive in the freezing cold of Antarctica...
Adapted from a true story, Antarctica tells the tragic saga of fifteen sled dogs abandoned in the South Pole. Director Koreyoshi Kurahara and his team have traveled several hundred thousand kilometers over three years in landscapes as fascinating as they are dangerous.
