Access Excellence Mysteries


Arctica -
Flashback: March 1834. Madness strikes the stranded Arctica polar expedition. Inside a cramped camp tent, men babble and walk aimlessly around dead bodies on the floor. One man huddles in a corner clutching his precious journals to his chest. Flash forward: It' s winter. Inside the modern workboat Lady Jane, three people examine these same journals. After 163 years of silence, broken only by rumors of cannibalism and madness, they are determined to learn exactly what happened.
