Stephen Mangan and Rhys Thomas star as Mark and Brian, two men who are setting out on the first carbon neutral, vegetarian, and organic expedition ever to attempt the North Pole. As a world first they have high hopes of getting into the Guinness Book of Records and, if all goes well, of saving the planet from global warming.

Unfortunately they have never done anything like this before. And they hadn't reckoned on the polar bears, the cocky gay Norwegians, or on Mark's rapidly loosening grip on reality.

No one said saving the planet was easy, but does it have to be this hard?

It's the story of two men trying to find their place in the world before the end of the world. And it asks one question of us all - how far would you go to save the planet?
