A photographer chases adventure from Los Angeles to the Canadian Arctic and for the first time finds herself on the line between life and death.
Julia (Clea DuVall) meets expedition leader Jack, (Timothy V. Murphy) who convinces her to join a photographic journey to the frozen tundra. Despite growing tension with her husband Ed (Toby Huss), Julia goes. Her trip evolves into a life threatening disaster. Ill equipped, she is abandoned. Darkness Falls...
Julia is rescued by an eleven-year old orphaned Inuit girl, Malaya (Katie May- Dunford) and taken to a small Inuit community. Julia stuck for days, discovers the dark underbelly of Malaya's world. She is troubled by her inability to rescue Malaya from a childhood that closely resembles her own, and decides to save this girl.
The expansive north is replaced by the crowded south, Malaya alone, unwanted by Julia's husband and overwhelmed by the coldness of Los Angeles concrete, attempts to return to the Canadian Arctic, forcing Julia to make a decision that leaves us wondering, who really saved whom.
