After her husband runs off with her savings, Ray Eddy (Leo) and her kids are destitute. Ray unwittingly finds herself in partnership with Mohawk Lila Littlewolf (Upham) as a people smuggler, driving illegal aliens across an iced-over St. Lawrence River bordering Quebec and New York State.
Original, sad, suspenseful and involving: the kind of work that helps independent American cinema retain its good name.
