It only takes a moment for a life to change forever.
Denton is a lucky man. Most things have gone his way, and being granted
full custody of Nate, his young son and “North Star,” has given him a
near-perfect life. On a crisp winter morning just before the start of
deer season, Ethan and Nate set off together to discover the beauties of
the forest. As he parks the truck, Ethan spots a pair of magnificent
bucks, and, eager to take a closer look, leaves Nate asleep in the car
seat, a brief, impulsive decision any parent might make. When he returns
only a few minutes later, the door of the truck is open and Nate is
nowhere to be seen.
As an unexpected blizzard blankets the
woods, Ethan searches for the missing three-year-old with the help of
other townspeople: Ethan’s ex-wife and his ex-best friend; an older
Jewish judge, whose concern and involvement is colored by recent
problems with his own son; a middle-aged lesbian couple; and others
touched by the crisis. Nate’s disappearance brings up past wounds for
everyone, but also miraculously provides the chance for love and
redemption as they struggle to make sense of the inexplicable.
