Joe Gastineau (David Strathairn) is still traumatised by an accident at sea years earlier, when he falls in love with feisty nightclub singer Donna De Angelo (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio). Together with her angst-ridden teen daughter, they take a fateful boat trip into the Alaskan wilderness... Sharp acting, dramatic scenery, a lean, cliché-free script (penned by director John Sayles) and a bold ending makes for a classy drama from one of America's finest indie helmers.
