A disgraced former army surgeon with an addiction to laudanum, Patrick Sumner, joins an Arctic whaling expedition as a ship's doctor. Upon his arrival, he learns that many of the men on board live close to darkness and act in brutish and primitive ways.
One of these men, the harpooner Henry Drax, is the worst of the lot. He believes in living only for the moment without giving life much though. Sumner comes to believe that Drax is a psychopath who enjoys killing without any remorse.
Soon Sumner finds himself facing off against both Drax and the Arctic's harsh climate in a bid to not only find redemption for his past sins but also save his own life.
