The man starts out at his camp. He gets ready to walk at four miles per hour to get to his group mates at another camp. He goes out with a dog and starts his journey.
During his journey he falls in the ice. He gets wet and starts to freeze. He try's to build a fire but it gets smothered with snow. He try's again but is unsuccessful.
The man try's different ways to get warm. He runs around in circles, considers murdering the dog and curling up inside it's dead body, and he keeps trying with the fire. Eventually he gives up and soon dies due to the cold. The dog leaves and goes to the nearby camp.
