In the midst of a violent snowstorm, a drunken middle-aged man runs over and kills someone with his yellow sidewalk snowplow. He wakes up at the wheel, deep in the forest unaware of where he is, and must rely on the weapon of his crime to survive the harsh winter conditions.
Set in the snowy winter of Northern Quebec, Whitewash is a dark-comedy thriller that follows a man’s imprisonment in the forest and his quest for survival, redemption and sanity.
