A group of technical people go to Antarctica where they locate a huge iceberg and then endeavor to tow it to Los Angeles where it will provide fresh water to augment that city’s dwindling water supply. Their efforts are hampered by one of their own who actually represents an organization trying to sell to Los Angeles fresh water generated by an expensive process wherein fresh water is obtained from sea water. During their circuitous trip north they discover an ancient body in an elaborate laboratory deep in the bowels of the iceberg.
