Storyline

Harvey Lippe' works as a janitor at a small ski resort in the peculiar Northern community of WhiteFox. Standing three feet four inches and abandoned at an orphanage as a child, he has grown up angry and miserable. Now in his early twenties he lives like a hermit in a small trailer, his only friend being Lucas Harold, the town drug dealer. Lucas attended the orphanage for several months before being adopted and subsequently moved to several fosters homes. He is rough around the edges, but has a big heart and a perspective few people give home credit for. Every evening Harvey walks the same route from his trailer, several miles through farmer's fields and hillside forest to get to work. But on this day he has a run in with a stray husky, which he at first thinks is a wolf. She follows him and that night he reluctantly allows her inside his trailer. Through her he meets Dakota Dixon, a dancer at a bizarre local strip joint. Dakota, Lucas, and Inca (as Harvey names her) develop into ... Written by Asher

4 July 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I Did not enjoy this film despite repeated attempts to watch it, and the fact that I really wanted to like it. I was frustrated by some of the far-fetched and unrealistic characters and scenes, I thought the protagonist was very difficult to relate to and ended up shutting the TV off after the scene at the vet clinic when the dog was injured. I think that scene completely missed whatever the director's intent was (with me anyways) and appeared cruel and sickening. Some parts of the movie are not bad, but it was one of the more difficult and awkward films I've seen in a long time. The protagonist's employer is unrealistically abusive and his friend Lucas is pretty hard to believe as well.
