It is 1914 and Europe is on the brink of war. Two days before hostilities between Germany and Great Britain begin, Ernest Shackleton’s ship, the Endurance, sets sail to begin its incredible Antarctic expedtion. On board, hiding deep within the ship, is a young adult with high ambitions.
Thirty years later a castaway is discovered by a German ship on a remote, icy island and is returned to an unrecognisable world, to a world full of political and environmental turbulence, to a world looking to its most eminent scientist, Professor Albert Einstein, to help fix some of the most urgent problems.
