Synopsis

A serious accident occurs onboard the Diego Star, a dilapidated Russian cargo ship. Traoré, a mechanic from the Ivory Coast, is unfairly blamed for it. The ship is towed to the nearest shipyard for repairs. In the interim, crewmembers find shelter with the inhabitants of the small local village. Far from everyone he loves and knows, Traoré is engulfed by the Quebec winter.
