The Platform. Episode 10


The Polar Star is among the biggest in the world, and is able to drill to unprecedented depths. The platform's crew must spend their days handling massive equipment on a man-made island exposed to the elements in the subarctic sea. Fortunes rest on striking gas in just 30 days, before winter closes in. It's a job that calls for discipline, determination and nerves of steel in an environment that can be deadly.
