After his girlfriend turns down his marriage proposal, sensitive poet Henrik Larsen becomes a fur trapper and is sent to Greenland. There he inhabits a small, filthy cabin with the brutish veteran Randbaek and the wily scientist Holm . Randbaek takes sadistic delight in taunting Henrik with graphic tales of his girlfriend's infidelities, and tensions among the three men mount as they struggle to survive in the punishing conditions.
