Description:
The Expedition tells the true story of three Swedish scientists who wanted to map the Arctic region by air balloon in 1897, but who made a forced landing only three days after their departure, finding their graves on a desert island in the Arctic Ocean after some harsh months, their last camp (corpses, drift-wood, sledges torn apart by ice-bears, rolls of film, rusty supplies, diaries...) only being discovered by sheer accident in 1930.
