In the frozen woods of an isolated Maine logging town, Lesley (Amy Morton), the local school bus driver, becomes distracted during her end-of-day inspection, and fails to notice a sleeping boy in the back of the bus. What happens next shatters the balance of the community, resulting in profound and unexpected consequences for two fractured families.
Stricken by an overwhelming sense of guilt, Lesley’s fragility is further tested by her husband (Emmy® Award nominee John Slattery) — a local logger preoccupied by the imminent closing of the town paper mill — and the boy’s mother Marla (Louisa Krause), a disaffected young woman looking to take advantage of a delicate situation. Capturing a lonely yet beautiful sense of place, the film explores the deeply personal yet transcendent effects of a tragedy on an isolated American town. Also starring Emmy® Award winner Margo Martindale, and Adam Driver.
