Ray Eddy (Melissa Leo) has recently been double crossed by her husband, who leaves her penniless after he disappears with the down payment for their new doublewide.

Reluctant to become involved in this dangerous life, Ray considers her bleak situation and joins Lila as they become human traffickers smuggling illegal Chinese and Pakistani immigrants across the frozen St Lawrence River. But it will only be a matter of time before they fall foul of the authorities...
