The effects of climate change have a profound impact on our planet. French explorer Claude Lorius was one of the first to realize that the bubbles of air often trapped inside the ice would be unique indicators helping to reconstitute the climate of 800.000 years ago. This mans’ life took a sudden turn, as he lost his memory during an accident in the 2004 Antarctica mission. We accompany him back to the ice fields in a mission to fully remember his own past.
