A captivating family drama about diverging ideas of fatherhood as an unforeseen event turns a mountainside vacation into a survival trip.

On what should be an idyllic vacation in the soaring Italian Dolomites, Aaron fights to win over Tristan and cement his place in this family, while the boy's subtle acts of rebellion gradually escalate toward a chilling climax. A hiking trip that Aaron plans to win the boys respect,turns into something more tragic when fog sets in and he loses the boy.
