1943 Norway, north of the Arctic Circle. Twelve Norwegian resistance fighters on a mission to sabotage German ships and outposts are betrayed by a countryman and attacked by a German minesweeper. Eleven of the men are captured, tortured and killed. Only the twelfth man gets away—his name: Jan Baalsrud. With the Gestapo on his heels, Jan escapes into the merciless winter, not realizing that his determination to survive will turn him into a symbol for the Norwegian resistance, a symbol that people are willing to die for.
