Synopsis

Jonah plays poker at a seedy back room game overseen by Tubby, who reluctantly grants Jonah one hundred grand in credit, which Jonah promptly loses. The volatile Tubby takes Jonah’s family dog as collateral, and warns Jonah that if he doesn’t pay up by first thing in the morning, he and his daughter Aurora are going to get hurt. When Jonah appeals to his girlfriend Kyla for a loan, she dumps him, tired of his lies and his negligent parenting. But all this changes abruptly when Jonah discovers that Aurora has a serious medical problem. He and Aurora take a journey to the north and to redemption.
