The story is set in the early years of the 20th century. With Amundsen and Scott cornering the market in terms of the race to the South Pole; Edwardian gentleman explorer, Richard Arrowsmith needs another epic journey to find his place in history. A heroic expedition to the bowels of the earth, starting from Iceland, is his hasty choice. He leads his faithful compatriot Captain Jangles and, curiously, a German female soldier, Rita von Schulz on the dangerous quest into the unknown. The action flows along as they encounter, amongst other things, a dinosaur and an earthquake. Do they succeed or is their expedition to be an example of glorious failure? Well….It’s the latter actually.
