One teenager’s dream to reach the top of the world.

14-year-old Jade is a quiet Melbourne schoolgirl who embarks on a bold bid to become the youngest human to trek to the North Pole.

Convinced success will inspire teenage girls everywhere to break free of society’s limiting expectations, she battles bitter cold, self-doubt, perilously thin ice and constant dangers to prove her point. With experienced polar guide, Eric Philips, and her supportive father, Paul, (who previously conquered Mount Everest), Jade has faith in those around her.

But as her father falls sick and her dream is in danger of unravelling, she has no idea if she has what it takes to survive the enormous challenges she has set herself. Having overcome a life-threatening childhood illness, this courageous and likeable teen puts her personal catch-cry ‘expand possible’ to the extreme test.

First broadcast 6 December 2016.
