As Meg Harris helps Eric try to deal with the situation, they discover the frozen and naked body of a young Québécoise. A young Algonquin is charged with her murder. Convinced of his innocence, Meg sets out to prove it and slams into a wall of police prejudice. Meanwhile Eric is faced with another disaster. Someone is supplying the children on the Migiskan Reserve with drugs. Are the two events connected?
As Meg scrambles to unravel the truth the snow turns to freezing rain locking her West Quebec wilderness within a prison of ice.
