Synopsis: Journalist Jack Cohen (Daniel Weingarten), is hungry for the big story that will change his career. His current underwhelming assignment lands him in a small town in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where no one talks to strangers, especially reporters. When a local, Emma (Zoe Kanters), offers to help, Jack begrudgingly accepts. Unbeknownst to her, he uncovers details of her tragic past, and with it the story he's been looking for. And he'll do whatever it takes to get it.
