A young Mi’kmaw hunter falls for a thief on the run in this Nova Scotia thriller.
Wolf (Justin Rain) is a young loner who lives just outside of town in a wooden shack with his ailing grandmother. While out trapping, he comes across Crane (Glen Gould), a wounded man with a mysterious past who has fled New York City with a briefcase full of stolen cash. Wolf spirits Crane to the cabin to nurse him back to health and, as their mutual attraction grows, a vicious gang trace Crane's location, determined to retrieve the money, no matter the cost.
Can Wolf and Crane hold off a small army that is out for blood? Bretten Hannam's feature debut elicits strong performances from its leads in this story of action and romance, proving North Mountain a solid addition to the growing number of Canadian aboriginal LGBT films.
