Jack and Mabel have staked everything on making a fresh start for themselves in a homestead in the raw Alaskan wilderness. But as the days grow shorter, Jack is losing his battle to clear the land, and Mabel can no longer contain her grief for the baby she lost many years before. In a moment of tenderness, the pair are surprised to find themselves building a snowman - or rather a snow girl - together. The next morning, all trace of her has disappeared, and Jack can't quite shake the notion that he glimpsed a small figure running through the spruce trees in the dawn light. And how to explain the little but very human tracks Mabel finds at the edge of their property?
