Paul arrives in Milestone, Nova Scotia, following the trail of his long-lost father, who was last seen there years earlier. Despite a frosty welcome from the locals, he decides to stay and try to learn more. Soon he meets Rauchine, a young, beautiful and unaffected girl living on a nearby island with her unstable mother and domineering grandmother. As Paul's attraction to Rauchine grows, he finds himself enmeshed in a web of jealousy, bitterness and fear.
