The North Water on ABC – Disgraced ex-army doctor Patrick Sumner (Jack O’Connell) joins The Volunteer as a ship’s surgeon, hoping to lose himself in the tough physicality of an Arctic whaling trip.

But the ferocity of the elements is matched by the violence of his crew mates. In particular, is Henry Drax (Colin Farrell), a harpooner, and a distinctly brutal force of nature.

As the true purpose of the expedition becomes clear, confrontation between the two men erupts taking them on a journey far from solid ground and way beyond the safe moorings of civilisation.

Starring Jack O’Connell, Colin Farrell , Stephen Graham (The Walk-In), Tom Courtenay, Peter Mullan.


Rations are running low. When two Inuit men arrive, Sumner offers his ring in exchange for seal meat. As hunger and exhaustion take hold, Drax sees a daring opportunity for freedom, but he requires help from Cavendish.

Sumner shoots at a bear and tracks it through the snow. They travel further and further until there’s no chance Sumner could ever survive the return journey.

Close to death and with one shot left, can a desperate Sumner find a way to improve his chances?
