After a series of attempts in and around his camp, he decides to venture into the unknown hoping to be rescued. As he lugs the woman along the unforgiving terrain of the Arctic, he is faced with nature's most dangerous obstacles. From battling blizzards to wild bears, Mikkelsen's character seems to persevere.
Before Arctic, Penna helmed the critically acclaimed short film titled Turning Point, which featured at 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.
