A cold and desolate wasteland is the perfect setting for this equally chilling tale of survival.

The world in a new Ice Age, a disease freezing the population from the inside out, and the rest of the survivors not even knowing whether or not they will make it through the day, this twisted , frozen world comes to life through flawless artwork that brings depth and consequence of what living in this world truly means to every facet of the characters.

Captain Keaton and her crew find themselves stranded on the wastelands far from a heat source and with little left in their rig. Short on jobs, Keaton reluctantly accepts to transport doctors Henry and Victoria across the ice to a lab in Alcatraz. Unfortunately, they are not the only ones looking to take a trip with these doctors.

After an outbreak of the deadly Frostbite, Keaton, and her crew are pushed ahead of schedule, until their Rig is destroyed by a group of raiders apparently after the doctors. With Keaton and her right-hand man Barlow separated and fighting for their lives, our captain learns exactly who they are transporting. And more importantly, why.
