Synopsis:
The Russian cargo ship on which African engineer Traoré works, strands off the coast of a wintry Canada. Traoré is held responsible for the engine failure. Wrongfully, claims the mechanic: the engine was far too old.
While the Canadian authorities investigate what really happened, the multicultural crew of the ship is housed with the local population. Traoré finds himself with Fanny, a single mother who wants to use this opportunity to earn some money on the side. At first she keeps her distance, but soon the lanky African wins her over with his gentle character. But then Traoré is sacked. He’s out in the cold, 10,000 kilometres from home.
