Frank Peters' peaceful life on his farm in the isolated Yorkshire Moors comes to an abrupt end when his beloved wife Maureen dies. Depressed when his daughter emigrates to Australia two weeks after the funeral, and that his son rarely visits or calls, Frank believes he is destined for a bleak and lonely future. Then one night, disturbed by a noise at the back of the house, he finds a badly injured young woman called Irena, and he's shocked when she reveals that she was brought into the country by a man who then imprisoned her and forced her into prostitution. Frank offers her a bed for the night, but it's the middle of winter and when heavy snowfall prevents her from leaving the next day, he's forced to extend the invitation - which causes problems with his daughter who, when she finds out, accuses him of betraying her mother.
