KIK Corporation is attempting to dig for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Environmentalist James Hoffman is on hand to make sure everything is on the up and up, much to the chagrin of drilling team leader [[RonPerlman Ed Pollack]]. With the schedule being grounded to halt due to an unusually warm winter and Hoffman's erring on the side of caution, Pollack's patience is wearing thin. With another team member showing signs of cabin fever and added drama of Hoffman sleeping with a former lover of Pollack's, tempers and tensions run high.

* DidNotDoTheResearch: This movie takes place in the The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge during winter. Meaning there should be little to no light during the day. Most of the films scenes take place during the day.

Is it all an unfortunate coincidence, perhaps hydrogen sulfide gas released from the permafrost, or is something much more sinister and super natural lurking in the harsh Alaska climate?
