Two polar explorers and their ultimate battle with the Bering Strait. Mother Nature knows no mercy… Polar travelers Dixie Dansercoer and Troy Henkels accept the ultimate confrontation with the dynamic polar ice. Their goal: crossing the relentless Bering Strait, a perilous stretch of water between Alaska and Siberia. This is the story of two experienced polar explorers who dare to face the unknowns of the Bering Strait ice, sea currents, wind and extreme cold. But this multi-faceted story continues into the profound sphere of expedition life: meticulous planning and awe at the wonders of the arctic. Swept Away won the National Geographic Award at the Trento Film Festival.
