Missing doesn't mean dead. That's what Tom, an eight-year-old boy decides. He wants to find his mother who went missing on a massive glacier five years ago. His father decides to send him to spend the school year with Gaspard, his maternal grandfather, who lives near the glacier.

While there, Tom uncovers family secrets, just as the glacier uncovers bit by bit pieces of the debris of the Malabar Princess, an Air India airplane that hit the glacier's peak 50 years ago before disappearing into the ever present snow.
