Suzanne Bird, a young Cree woman, goes missing in Toronto, where she went after leaving the remote Northern Ontario town she grew up in, to become a successful model. Up north, her uncle Will (Brandon Oakes) clashes with a local drug dealer who believes Will knows her whereabouts.

Meanwhile, her fiercely independent twin sister Annie (Tanaya Beatty) travels to Toronto to retrace her sibling’s footsteps... and finds herself drawn into the seductively glamorous life Suzanne left behind.
