Two top orienteers from decades past travel to Lapland to set out on a four-day skiing expedition. But when the couple is struck by a blinding snowstorm in the wilderness, they are forced to make tough choices in life-threatening circumstances. The once-familiar trip turns into an impossible navigational task: which direction is the right one and how to find home when you can't tell earth from sky?
