This is the story of a cause to create the world’s largest marine sanctuary in the Antarctic Ocean. On this journey, we follow brothers Javier and Carlos Bardem, spokespersons for the Antarctic Sanctuary campaign, in their endeavour to raise the necessary awareness and support to make this initiative a reality. Gaining every inch of ground in this struggle to save the eco-system of the last untouched wilderness on the planet is no easy task. We will accompany our protagonists on their voyage aboard the Arctic Sunrise and see first-hand how science, politics and social media have joined forces to bring together almost 3 million people in support of this cause, that ultimately rests in the hands of an international governing body.
