In 1997, a research team of 8 men arrived at Dome Fuji Station in Antarctica. The station is 1,000km away from the Antarctic coast in an environment so inhospitable that nothing, not even viruses can survive there.

Mr Nishimura is the team’s chef and, using limited ingredients and in the extremely challenging circumstances, tries to provide delicious meals for the group on a daily basis. This is a film of 8 unique individuals having to live together for one and a half years.

A heart-warming story in a super-cold setting!
