Once a town hero, disgraced NHL star Ray (Shawn Doyle) returns home to Newfoundland from the US following a drug conviction, only to have his wife Lillian leave him for another man and aspirations of stardom. With Lillian gone, Ray flails from woman to woman trying to find a replacement for her, while struggling against a growing awareness of his homosexuality.

At loose ends for lack of guidance, Ray's daughter Ruby (Tatiana Maslany) is becoming increasingly curious about her own sexuality and, in a desperate plea for attention, puts herself in increasingly risky situations. She begins spending more and more time with Ray's best friend Stuart (Jonny Harris), confined to a wheelchair following an accident involving Ray. When Stuart finds himself attracted to Ruby, dangerously motivated by fear and anger, he leads the three of them towards a heartbreaking conclusion.
