In the aftermath of the Second World War, newlyweds Wilson and Judith struggle to build a life together in Calgary. Then, they receive a surprising offer from Wilson's father's estate: make their home in a remote cabin in northern Manitoba for three years, and receive $10,000 -- enough to buy a home of their own and build a new life.

Loneliness, hunger and brutal winters test their resolve and their love. Their paths intersect with that of a timber wolf, with unpredictable results. Will they be able to stay the required three years in hopes of gaining a fortune, and some answers to questions that have plagued Wilson all his life?
