Greenland, 1908. Josephine, self-confident and bold wife of famous Arctic explorer Robert Peary, embarks on a dangerous journey in pursuit of her husband who is seeking a route to the North Pole. But Josephine is also naïve and ignores warnings from experienced polar travellers about the onset of winter. At great sacrifice the expedition reaches Peary's base camp. Josephine refuses to go home and wants to spend winter in the hut. Only the young Inuit woman Allaka, who lives in an igloo and knows about the cold, stays with her. As the long nights draw nearer, Josephine realises she has more in common with this woman from a different world than she thought.
Isabel Coixet has already participated in the Berlinale six times and was a member of the jury in 2009. Once again she depicts a woman who proves her courage and readiness to take risks beyond her everyday life. In addition, Josephine has to learn to adapt to a different culture and way of living to survive in the perpetual ice. The camera unveils the loneliness of the two women in the midst of forbidding nature but also, within the darkness and confinement, their closeness which is essential for their survival.
