Originally from Cameroon, Awa works as a snow groomer driver in La Thuile, the last Italian town before France. During one of her shifts, she encounters a young migrant who is desperately trying to cross the border. Helping him navigate the mountain might be the only way for Awa to silence a constant, nagging sense of guilt.
