Film details


A polar expedition discovers by chance a man who has been frozen in ice since 1910. On their return, they manage to revive him and try to avoid giving him a psychological shock by making his descendants live as if in 1910, and making them, now in their 50s, put up with the whims of their 30 year-old ancestor.
