Following a tough divorce Lucas has a new girlfriend, a new job, and is in the process of reestablishing his relationship with his son. But things go awry. Not a lot. Just a passing remark. A random lie. And as the snow falls, the lie spreads like an invisible virus. The shock and mistrust gets out of hand. Soon the small community finds itself in a collective state of hysteria, while Lucas fights a lonely fight for his life and dignity.
