The year is 1960. The place: Talcahuano, Chile. At 9.5, it is still the most powerful earthquake ever recorded anywhere. Two Chilean Naval officers hatch a plot to profit from the chaos when they are assigned to guard the Central Bank of Chile in Talcahuano. When they find out they are being sent to Base Bernardo O’Higgins on the North Antarctic Peninsula, they hide their loot in the cargo hold of their ship, in a crate belonging to Chilean Army Officer Rodriquez. They offer him a share of the loot but when he refuses, they abandon him to his death while on a seal hunt. What they don’t realize is that a member of the ship’s crew, Cristian Barbudo, is actually from Internal Affairs, working undercover to find out who stole millions from the Central Bank of Chile. When Barbudo reveals his true identity to Scientist Ted Stone, Stone becomes a target that must be silenced. What follows is a life and death struggle in what could be the world’s most inhospitable environment.
