Plot summary...

As winter creeps towards his rural Newfoundland community, local widower and workhorse Patrick Whelan (Lawrence Barry) finds himself at odds with a young man returning home from a stint in the penitentiary, determined to breathe new life into his father’s bitter feud. As violence erupts, lines are drawn in the sand, leaving Patrick plagued by guilt and a fractured home life.  Aggressive, profane, with a stroke of contemplative naturalism - this is a raw portrait of outport Newfoundland.
