Set during the 1947 Leduc oil strike, Wes and Ev struggle in the oil and water of a young marriage in peril, in winter, in a tarpaper shack in the woods, with a baby and another dry well. He wants a gusher, she wants a garden and Tricky wants a girl like Ev, his best friend’s wife. While the men work all day and all night, Ev meets a lady trapper in the woods, Nohkum, who shows her the power of the river in the difficult landscape of marriage.
