While on a biology mission on the icy shores of the Antarctic, three young scientists, Céline, Pierrick and Jean, decide to change the site of their research. Instead of staying along the littoral where their camp was supposed to be, they venture illegally inland where they find a frozen lake whose waters have been protected for millenniums by layers of ice. For the three scientists, it’s an incredible sanctuary for unknown bacteria.
They settle down around the lake, ready their equipment, dig a hole in the ice and dive into the lake.
Their make unprecedented and precious discoveries. However, after a few days, they start to feel dizzy. They manage to call for help, but in the midst of their delirium, they start to behave like wolves.
