Ray Eddy is about to buy her little family the house of her dreams. But when her gamble-loving husband takes off with the money, Ray finds herself alone with her kids and completely broke. Trying to trace her husband down, she meets Lila Littlewolf, a Mohawk girl who provides her with a plan for earning easy money: smuggling immigrants on the frozen Saint Lawrence. Desperate for money, Ray accepts the offer: she will drive the car. However as the river gets thinner, Ray and Lila will discover that smuggling immigrants comes at a cost.
