Young Sacha can’t accept the fact her grandfather never came back from his expedition to the North Pole. In 1882, she sets out from Saint Petersburg on the long trek to find her grandpa. To face the difficult journey, she has to follow in his footsteps, learning everything about sailing and artic expeditions. But no doubt about it, Sacha is so driven she’ll make it.
