Overview
Based on the best-selling novel, JULIA ORMAND ("Sabrina") and GABRIEL BYRNE ("End of Days") star in this gripping, suspenseful thriller about a headstrong woman who uses her uncanny knowledge of ice and snow to unravel a taut web of lies and intrigue.

When her six-year old neighbor falls from a snow covered roof, Smilla (Ormond) suspects the boys death was no accident. Together with a mysterious lover (Byrne), who holds secrets of his own, she defies local authorities and begins a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse in an effort to uncover the truth.
