Coming home out of desperation, Jordie finds his family's painful past is almost too much to overcome. They can't reconnect as a family until long buried secrets come out.
The three MacAulay brothers – Jordie, Nicky, and Noah – are at the center of the plot. Jordie, rootless and angry, has just been thrown off another hockey team for fighting. Tired of sleeping in the back of his truck, he heads back to the Malpeque peninsula where he grew up. There, his brother Nicky – married, cheating, and angry – reluctantly allows him to stay in a house he’s looking after until it sells. And the youngest brother, Noah – bright-eyed and chatty - welcomes him home like an excited puppy.
Jordie eases back into life in Malpeque, playing on the community hockey team, working in the family shipbuilding business, and going out on the fishing boats. But the family tensions that drove him away from home years ago haven’t disappeared and eventually they burst forth with added venom fostered by years of hurt and bitterness.
