On an Arctic expedition, Stanley Shephard (Timothy Hutton) discovers “Charlie” (John Lone), a Neanderthal man frozen in ice for 40,000 years. With a team of scientists, Shepard revives Charlie and begins to observe the man and learn about his prehistoric culture. But when the media catches on to the discovery, Stanley must protect Charlie from fellow scientists who want to use his corpse for scientific research…

The film will be preceded by a talk from Maooz Awan, PhD research fellow in Cryobiology at University College London, who will explore the realities of cryopreservation and what is possible with current technologies.
