Synopsis:
Life for Richard Forbush (John Hurt), brilliant biology student and conceited philanderer, is one long round of eat, drink and be merry. But his decision to accept a six-month research post in the Antarctic, making the first detailed study of a penguin colony, changes all that...Living in Shackleton's derelict hut, Forbush is alone at the frozen edge of the world, his only links to civilisation a two-way radio and letters to his elusive, would-be girlfriend, Tara (Hayley Mills), in London. Through an often ferocious winter in the company of the penguins, he grows increasingly attached to his hardy, endearing subjects - learning profound lessons in endurance and humility.
