Five countries are trying to make claims to the seabed surrounding the North Pole. Borders have to be drawn and a set of rules has been laid out by the United Nations. The territorial war of today is scientific – it is about collecting the most convincing data. A Danish-Swedish expedition sets out to collect data in the ice sea where no icebreaker has been before, and meets the forces of nature.
