In 2025, six people have accepted an anonymous invitation and are now aboard the “Arctic Serenity”, which mysteriously collided with an illegal oil rig on its maiden voyage many years ago. In whose interests was the radical sell­off of Greenland and its valuable raw materials? Oscillating between theatre and cinemascope­film, the award­winning director Anne-­Cécile Vandalem unfolds a fictional political thriller against the backdrop of the real environmental catastrophe.
