THE LOCATIONS OF THE STORY

A feature eight episodes TV series is being written, based, among other things, on the events that took place in January 1903 when twelve German fishermen stranded their ship on a remote south coast of Iceland.

For eleven days, the men searched shelter and rescue on black desert sand that was surrounded by impassable glaciers, glacial rivers, and quicksand that could swallow both humans and animals.

Two of them died and one disappeared. Finally, nine of them found a shelter on an isolated Icelandic farm. The farmers put themselves in great danger seeking distant medical help. Because of life-threatening frost damages, five of them were amputated. Despite the primitive conditions, these surgeries witness the excellence of the professionalism of the Icelandic doctors who had to perform them on the farm's dining table. For this they receive the highest medal and recognition from the German Emperor Wilhelm II.

Erich lost both his feet. When he, five months later, returned home to Germany, he was faced with new challenges, alleged rejection, and fraud.

The story is based e.g. on the newfound memories of the ship's captain.
