1970. The frozen wastes of the Arctic. A ‘small clerical error’ finds Private Rudy Spruance posted to an army hospital that doesn’t “officially” exist. In charge is the crazed Colonel Woolwrap, aided by his beautiful sergeant and secret lover.
Rudy soon realises that he is the only sane man on the base. After various failed escape attempts he falls for the colonel’s girlfriend and stumbles upon one of the US Military’s best kept secrets… a secret that the Pentagon is determined will never be told. But Rudy has other ideas.
Offbeat, scary and funny, this film is a bit of a departure for Jeremy who plays the gruff bear-like Colonel Woolwrap. Watch out for the scene-stealing puffins, too, they’re very cute and funny. The film is based on John Griesemer’s book No one thinks of Greenland.
Cast includes Jason Biggs as Rudy, Natascha McElhone as Colonel Woolwrap’s grilfriend and Michael Ironside as Guy X.
