Starring Malcolm Rennie (‘Sherlock’, ‘Coronation Street’, ‘Mr Selfridge’) 


Directed by Tony Milner

Shackleton's Endurance sank in Antarctica leaving 28 men stranded. The carpenter, Harry McNish played a vital role in saving them. He also defied Shackleton, so was never awarded the Polar Medal. Now, ill and destitute, he challenges the Boss on the dockside.

In his fevered mind he relives the Endurance expedition, pitting himself against Shackleton and plagued by the ghosts of his past.

How did he antagonise the hero of Antarctica?  How does he come to terms with it?
