1859, Patrick Sumner (Jack O’Connell) joins The Volunteer as a ship’s surgeon, hoping to lose himself in the tough physicality of an Arctic whaling trip. But the ferocity of the elements is matched by the violence of his crew mates, with Drax (Colin Farrell), a harpooner, a distinctly brutal force of nature. As the true purpose of the expedition becomes clear, confrontation between the two men erupts taking them on a journey far from solid ground and way beyond the safe moorings of civilisation.
