Trama: Mitchell Stevens, un avvocato di mezza età, si reca in un villaggio della Columbia Britannica colpito da una terribile tragedia: uno scuolabus, dopo essere uscito di strada, è precipitato in un lago ghiacciato, trascinando con sé tutti i bambini della piccola comunità che erano a bordo. Deciso a far ottenere un risarcimento alle famiglie delle piccole vittime, Stevens ne convince i genitori a intentare causa. Tutti gli accordano la loro fiducia tranne Billy Ansell, convinto che il processo serva soltanto a rinnovare un dolore troppo grande per poter essere lenito da qualunque risarcimento. Stevens - che nel caso sta riversando anche la sua frustrazione di genitore con una figlia che si droga ed è sieropositiva - conta molto sulla testimonianza dell'unica supersite, l'adolescente Nicole, rimasta paralizzata in seguito all'incidente: la ragazzina, legata al padre da un rapporto incestuoso, in un primo momento acconsente a testimoniare. Tuttavia, dopo aver assistito all'ennesimo tentativo da parte di Ansell di persuadere suo padre a rinunciare al processo, affermerà il falso, facendo crollare il castello accusatorio di Stevens e le speranze della comunità di ottenere il risarcimento
