When the exploratory starship from Earth PolarStar crashed in the ice-covered mountains of the nameless planet the few survivors who made it to the warmer lowlands had no idea just how hostile this world could be. The plants were poisonous or actively hunted them, the animals were not all that friendly either. Most of them died. Some had children. Twenty years have passed and the small settlement between the endless forest and the ice-covered mountains is set for a major change. They have started to dream of rescue, of rejoining the human race, of going back to the stars. But to do that, they will have to risk everything, the lives of their children, and their loves.
