It starts on August 5 with "The Head", an international production directed by Jorge Dorado and scripted by Àlex is David Pastor with Isaac Sastre. The series is set in the South Pole, where winter has come and the sun will soon disappear for the next six months. A small team of researchers, "The Winterers", are preparing to stay in the Polaris VI research station to continue the fight against climate change. Leading them is the biologist Arthur Wilde (John Lynch).
At the arrival of spring, the summer project leader Johan Berg (Alexander Willaume) returns to the station and faces an unexpected situation: almost all team members are dead or missing. There is a killer on the loose and Annika (Laura Bach), Johan's wife, is missing. There is no other way to find her, but to trust Maggie (Katharine O'Donnelly), the young doctor who appears to be the group's only survivor.
