When the ship is stranded with engine failure in wintry Northern Canada and has to be towed into the little port of Levis, Traoré is given the blame. He defends himself, but stands alone. The only person he can trust is Fanny, a single mother. When the authorities get involved, Traoré decides to publicize conditions aboard the Diego Star.
