Iona is a young Cape Breton woman who finds work as a loader operator in a camp of an enormous Alberta oil sands mining operation. Her fragile independence is upended when she finds herself pregnant after a casual sexual encounter with a friend. She is unsettled by the pregnancy and feels all options to deal with it involve serious complications, including the offer of an infertile couple to adopt the child if she is willing to carry it to term.
