The North Water

Survival in the Arctic wasteland.


Set in the ice floes of the Arctic in the late 1850s, ‘The North Water’ tells the story of Patrick Sumner, played by Jack O’Connell, a disgraced ex-army surgeon who signs up as ship’s doctor on a whaling expedition.

On board he meets the brutish killer Henry Drax played by Colin Farrell and finds himself in a male-dominated world on an ill-fated journey with a murderous psychopath. In search of redemption, his story becomes a harsh struggle for survival in the Arctic wasteland.
