Mildred is suddenly thrown out of her hum-drum TV screen routine and thrust into the heart of an Arctic adventure. She is sent on an impossible mission to the Midnight City, but her journey drastically changes course, and with only a polar bear for company, she faces the challenge of a lifetime. A family show that strives for young audiences to engage with the themes of self-worth, equality and friendship.
