    • Synopsis
    • Jack (Daniel Ponickly, "Mona Lisa Smile", "Raw Cut") is a widower struggling with his continued depression as
      he falls for Ruby (Antoinette Kalaj, "Riddick", "Don Jon"),
      a passionate environmental engineering grad student
      who is embroiled in a poisonous waste controversy.
      Due to the encouragement of his sister (Mischa Barton,
      "The OC", "The Sixth Sense"), Jack finally leaves his
      Alaskan cabin for the first time in months and meets
      Ruby, only to be confronted by her crazed ex-boyfriend,
      Andrew (Jonathan Bennett, "Mean Girls", "Van Wilder").
      Against the warnings of her mentor - Prof. Goodwell
      (Billy Zane, "Titanic", "Big Kiss") - Ruby exposes the
      city to an environmental crisis, thrusting her grant funding
      - along with her doctoral research trip - into jeopardy.
      As their friendship blooms into something deeper,
      Ruby and Jack discover that love can be found anywhere,
      even in Alaska.
