A tough job with great expectations – The Platform Ep.1

Drillers and seamen gather on the Polar Star gas drilling platform in the Sea of Okhotsk to prepare for their new assignment. These guys have one of the toughest, most dangerous jobs in the world. They have just 30 days to drill 3km into the seafloor to hit gas.  To be successful, they will have to set aside personal differences and present a united front.  In this harsh subarctic environment, a violent storm, accident, or mistake could prove disastrous for the entire rig and crew.
