When five snowboarder friends meet for a reunion in an isolated mountain lodge in the French Alps, they soon find out no one really knows who invited them.

It's been ten years since they've seen each other, and the winter when the enigmatic Saskia went missing.

When an icebreaker game they play on arrival turns menacing, they soon realise someone is determined to dig up the secrets of the past. And will go to any lengths to find out the truth of what happened that winter.

They were all there. But who has the most to hide?
