Photojournalist Michael Wilde has had his life on hold since his partner and lover Krissy was critically injured in a climbing accident. She's in a coma with no chance of coming out of it. Her parents blame him and insist that she'll improve. Her sister knows the truth and tries to keep Michael informed about Krissy's condition. Hoping to get Michael back on track, his editor at Eco-Travel presents him with an assignment he hopes Michael can't refuse – a chance to go to Antarctica on an NSF visa to interview scientists and workers at Point Adélie. So, it's off to Antarctica, unaware that this story is going to take him places he never expected. From official release/information:
Product Description: After months of seclusion following a tragic accident, contemporary journalist Michael Wilde could use a distraction – not to mention some work. And when his editor offers to send him to Antarctica on assignment, he jumps at the chance.
