Saint Petersburg, 1882. Sasha, a 15-year-old girl from the upper crust, has always been fascinated by her famous grandpa’s adventurous expeditions. From his last expedition, an attempt to reach the North Pole, he has not returned. When, to make matters worse, the Czar’s new advisor tries to drag his memory through the mire, Sasha revolts. She runs away and decides to go look for her grandfather and his arctic ship that is stuck in the ice. Sasha braves the fact that nobody initially takes her seriously. Her perseverance does make an impression and eventually she persuades the captain of a ship that has been converted into an icebreaker to take her aboard. While the perils of the journey make the crew ever more tense, Sasha proves to be a capable navigator with the help of the notes her grandfather left. The compass is aimed north and takes them ever deeper into the white wilderness.
