Harvey (Jordan Prentice) is all of three feet four inches tall. Now in his early twenties, he was abandoned as a child and grew up at a small orphanage several miles from where he now works, as a janitor at the WhiteFox Ski Resort. This evening like all other evenings, he walks to work with his old wood snowshoes and his head down. When he crosses paths with a stray husky, his world begins to change. She follows him and he reluctantly takes her in. The next day while buying her food he meets Dakota Dixon (Kristin Adams). A stripper at the bizarre Fox and Fur she offers to help him with the dog. Lucas Harold, Harvey’s only friend, whom he met while at the orphanage, convinces him to help build an amateur luge course. Over the next two weeks he and Dakota’s relationship grows. As though on cue Harvey’s world collapses around him when Inca his dog, gets hit by a snowmobile, Dakota gets together with another guy, he looses his job, and the heater in his trailer breaks. Unable to cope, Harvey runs back to the safety of the orphanage church. When Lucas finds him he tells him what he already knows, that if he stays at the church he will stay insignificant. The next day Harvey finds Dakota, who is leaving for New York to start a new job. They embrace and say goodbye, friends but not lovers. That afternoon Harvey and Lucas ride down the luge, Harvey laughs, happy.
