The movie begins in a Russian plane flying over Antarctica in the 1950s. A gun fight occurs in the plane, causing the plane to crash. Everyone on the plane is killed. The scene changes over to modern times. The scene then shows people departing in a hurry because a winter storm is rapidly approaching. Winter will stay for six months, which will hinder all travel. Carrie Stetko has been working in Antarctica, as a Deputy U.S. Marshall, for two years now. She has intentions of retiring in just a couple of days. Doc and Stetko had recently discovered a body in a Mesa. The body is that of a Scientist, one of three. These Scientists were searching for meteorites. The cause of death was discovered to be murder, by an axe. Stetko wants to give this case to someone else, so she can go home. Instead, she decides to keep it for herself and research it.
