Sandra, a German writer, her French husband Samuel, and their son Daniel live a secluded life in a remote town in the French Alps. When Samuel is found dead in the snow in front of their chalet, the police question whether he committed suicide or was killed. Sandra becomes the main suspect. Little by little the trial becomes not just an investigation of the circumstances of Samuel’s death, but an unsettling psychological journey into the depths of Sandra and Samuel’s conflicted relationship.
