Ultimately a story about love and survival, Angelique ignores the warnings of her grandmother, Green Thunderbird (Tantoo Cardinal) and sets out with her husband, a voyageur. When they are abandoned on the deserted on Isle Royale before the onset of a harsh winter, Angelique finds her faith tested as she fights starvation, the elements and a treacherous Lake Superior.
