Set in a small town near the North Pole where roads lead to nowhere, the story follows Roman (DeHaan) and Lucy (Maslany), two burning souls who come together to make a leap for life and inner peace.
The production ran into a problem with the streetlights of Iqaluit and Apex during filming in Nunavut. The streetlights in these locations are sodium-based and cast an unusual orange-green hue, especially when captured on camera. The production asked the Qulliq Energy Corporation of Nunavut for permission to turn off 50 lights for filming, but was told it would cost at least $22,500 for turning off just 15 lights and would cost much more to turn off the full 50 lights, something the production had not expected and therefore had not allocated any of their production budget for. This led the production to many discussions over several months with the Iqaluit City Council for assistance in turning off the lights.
