Set against the backdrop of the icy, oceanic dangers of the Newfoundland seal hunt, this film is technically and thematically a remarkable example of maverick filmmaking in the north. An extraordinary portrait of a people's dramatic struggle for existence, with extensive actuality footage of shipboard life and the hunt itself woven into the story, it captures scenes that had never before been recorded on film and cost twenty-six lives in the making.

The bravery of these men is extraordinary. It is so realistically depicted. Hard to believe what men went through to survive. An amazing feat of filming under very dangerous conditions. If people had to do stuff like this in this day and age, I
doubt it would get done!
