When a snowstorm cancels Clint Dokic’s flight to Thompson where his pregnant wife Kaly waits, Clint forces his mother and brother into an ill-advised road trip. The blizzard outside is nothing compared to the storm brewing within the 4 x 4.
A blizzard grounds the plane real-estate agent Clint Dokic is supposed to take from Winnipeg to Thompson where his very-pregnant wife Kaly waits. Undeterred, he forces his mother, Meg, and younger brother, over-educated, under-achieving Darryl, to join him on an ill-advised road trip in Darryl's 4 x 4.
The path to Thompson is expected to be long and treacherous, with blowing snow and icy roads. What the three Dokic's don't see coming is the journey they have to take within the vehicle. Each harbouring secrets that might destroy the others if known, the trio battle the elements, each other, and their own demons to arrive at a destination they aren't so sure they want to reach.
