In 1931, a documentary filmmaker hears of J.C. Sullivan who may know the fate of the Hollandia, a Norse ship that sailed in 1905 to Antarctica and disappeared. .J.C. Sullivan was the carpenter on that ill fated voyage and is the last known surviving crewmember of the Hollandia. The filmmaker interviews J.C. Sullivan who also is able to supply him with canisters of old film footage which back up the unbelievable accounts that J.C. Sullivan describes.

The film made in 1993 is presented as a 1931 documentary of a series of events that occurred in 1905. The footage of the fictional expedition is from other polar expeditions of the time. These clips are interspersed with the interview of J.C. Sullivan.
