A young drifter named Joe (Ewan McGregor
) finds work on a barge owned by the down-to-earth Les (Peter Mullan
) and his enigmatic wife Ella (Tilda Swinton
). One afternoon Joe and Les happen upon the corpse of a young woman floating in the water and the questions begin. Accident? Suicide? Murder?
As the police investigate the case and a suspect is arrested, it becomes evident that Joe knows more about the drowned woman Cathie (Emily Mortimer
) than he will admit. Meanwhile, against the backdrop of the investigation, Joe and Ella embark on a passionate affair.
