Storyline

In the harsh, wintry woods of rural Quebec, Bruce (Thomas Haden Church), a down-on-his-luck snowplow operator, accidentally kills a man during a drunken night joyride. Stricken with panic, he hides the body and takes to the deep wilderness in hopes of outrunning both the authorities and his own conscience. But as both begin to close in, Bruce falls apart mentally and morally and mysteries unravel to reveal who he was before the accident, the truth behind his victim, and the circumstances that brought them together in a single moment.

Sympathetic fugitive tale
21 October 2018 | by shakercoolaSee all my reviews

A Canadian drama; Set in snowy rural Quebec, it tells the story of a man who makes himself prisoner following a tragic accident. The main theme of this tale is a good deed that turns bad does not go unpunished. It's well acted, with Haden Church bringing some humour and an impressive monologue to what is a tragic development for his character. It's a small film but it does have some impact as a crime and punishment story.
