Sudden freezing temperatures cause weather patterns to change for the worse and threaten a catastrophe that will affect the entire world. As various government agencies struggle to find a solution, they all converge on a single man: Alex Cave, a professor of geophysics.
Alex leads a small band of volunteers in a desperate attempt to remedy the situation before civilization faces ecological disaster, but members of the group have their own agenda, seeking wealth and fame through murder and seduction.
Captain John Dieter’s greed blinds him to the suffering caused by the disastrous weather conditions, and he enlists the help of modern day pirates to capture a high-tech research vessel named the Mystic, the only ship capable of saving humanity from extinction. He takes the Mystic to an unknown island in the Bering Sea in search of hidden treasure, but what he discovers is an alien artifact, which is freezing the oceans at an incredible rate, and will engulf the planet in a matter of weeks.
Can Alex and the crew of the Mystic stop the sudden freezing before the world enters a new Ice age?
