January 21st 1968 – An American B-52 bomber carrying nuclear warheads has just crashed on the polar ice near the US military Air Base in Danish controlled Thule, Greenland. A few days later, responsible governments classify the crash as a Broken Arrow scenario (nuclear accident) but proclaims the situation being under control. No cause for concern in relation to radioactive contamination or violation of foreign power’s sovereignty, nuclear policy. Hundreds of Thule workers are set to work, helping in the gigantic clean-up operation. After eight months, all traces of the crashed aircraft and the plutonium-contaminated snow are gone. The case is closed.

18 years on, while covering a local workers compensation story, reporter Poul Brink, suddenly runs into suspicious circumstance linking back to the concealed 68’ nuclear accident. Apparently the full and true story about the crash lays well-protected deep under the Thule Bay’s ice cap and deep down the classified archives in the US.The ambitious reporter launches an uncompromising investigation.

The deeper he goes the further he finds himself in the heart of an International cover-up so immense in size that it holds 2 nations across the Atlantic culpable. Soon those in charge are finding it hard to keep the truth about tragic accident under wraps, and will take any measure to suppress Brink.
