After a long separation, a sister and brother are reunited for a visit at an isolated lake house during an extremely cold winter. The sister, Yasmeen, has just arrived in the U.S. from their home country of Syria. She left after being exposed to the violent and traumatic events happening there. Her brother, Omar, is a musician and has been in the U.S. for many years. He is coping with his own exile from his ex-wife and child, who have recently moved to another part of the country.
