The film freely imagines what happened during the mythical Denmark Expedition 1906-08 to The Northeast of Greenland. The indomitable amateur detective Steffen Holberg is determined to uncover the truth about the expedition: What were the circumstances that led to the tragic deaths of Ludvig Mylius-Erichsen, Niels Peter Høeg Hagen and Jørgen Brønlund? Was there more at stake in the expedition than two missing bodies? In his search for answers, Holberg goes on a voyage of discovery into the state archives, seeking help from experts, modern scanning technology and old-fashioned handwriting analysis. In the rugged terrain between reality and myth, past is interwoven with present into a larger tale about the human zeal to map new lands, gain new knowledge and create meaning in the apparent meaninglessness of human life.
