When Cooper, a big city lawyer, returns home to a small northern town for his mother’s wedding, he plans to be in and out without a scratch. But his deadbeat brother, Toph, has other ideas. He coerces Cooper into driving to the remote alpine cabin where they spent their childhood summers to evict a squatter who has been living in the cabin. Except now, it’s the dead of winter. Their sketchy plan goes from bad to worse, as bruised egos and buried resentments bubble to the surface. Cars explode, cabins burn, pot cookies are consumed and when the smoke clears the brothers find themselves stranded in the punishing Rocky Mountain winter, fighting for both their relationship and their lives. Toph and Cooper must face down their past to rediscover and define the meaning of brotherhood as they must learn to work together as brothers if they are ever to get back to civilisation.
