Jamie and his fiancee Bev are doing just fine in their basement apartment in Chapel Arm, Newfoundland. Bev works as a beautician, Jamie has a job as a Òdick-pickerÓ at the local fish plantÑand the young couple are expecting a baby.

But when JamieÕs childhood sweetheart, Dodi, returns unexpectedly from the mainland, their small-town world is rocked. Complicating matters is DodiÕs alcoholic uncle Art, who has just torched the house heÕs been living inÑand everyone in town knows he did it.
