Full Synopsis

The destructive effects of global warming cause unimaginable devastation and panic worldwide. The human race finds itself contemplating the dawn of a new ice age in this epic disaster staring Richard Roxburgh, Frances O’Connor, Claire Forlani, Ben Cross, Simon Callow, Patrick Bergin with Stephen Moyer and Sam Neill.

It is 2020. Global warming has turned the regions of Southern Europe to desert and the Arctic polar ice cap is disappearing rapidly. There is a refugee crisis on an unprecedented scale as populations migrate north. Energy companies are turning to increasingly dangerous methods to extract what little oil is left on Earth.

Environmental scientist and activist Professor Thom Archer, warns of the imminent possibility of a new ice age. His findings suggest that Halo, the corporate energy company drilling on the Greenland Glacier are causing it to melt, with alarming consequences. Archer heads to the Polar Alliance subcommittee and presents his findings to a sceptical audience, failing to convince anyone of the danger ahead.

Intent on exposing Halo, Archer receives a frantic call from friend and colleague Ben Jameson and heads to the glacier. Jameson, an expert Glaciologist, claims to have found damning evidence that proves Archer’s findings are correct. Arriving on the ice cap, the effects of Halo’s actions are clear to see. With the realisation that the human race is under immediate threat, Archer races home to his family hoping he’s not too late.

The collapse of the glacier is every bit as devastating as Archer imagined. Astonishing weather patterns emerge and plunge the world’s temperatures into steep decline.

ICE confronts a wholly terrifying and plausible natural disaster of epic proportions, which sets the world at the mercy of the elements that consume it. This uncompromising production sees a planet on the brink of annihilation, unleashing an apocalypse with an intensity and magnitude that audiences will never forget.
