Today. Northern Quebec at the beginning of winter. Mani, an ambitious lawyer in her 20s, returns to her remote Indigenous community and realizes that many outdated paternalistic laws are still in force. In hopes of emancipating her people, she proposes a radical referendum to end the prohibition of alcohol. This is catastrophic for Laura, a 45-year-old bootlegger who has been smuggling illegal alcohol onto the reserve for years. Mani’s and Laura’s opposing forces quickly divide the community into two clans who must come face to face to determine the best path to independence.
