In the summer of 2013, Sebastien Roubinet decided to cross the Arctic Ocean with Vincent Berthet onboard a catamaran-iceboat hybrid called Babouchka, capable of sailing on both water and ice. After his failed attempt in 2011 to be the first in the history of mankind to cross the Arctic Ocean in a sailing vessel without any assistance, will Sebastien finally manage to cross it? Or will the hostile weather conditions, frostbite, and depleting resources get the better of them? Find out in this documentary packed with stunning visuals of a less-explored region.
