The Great Depression is still frothing in America in the winter of 1934. It is felt most strongly in a run down boarding house in Duluth, Minnesota. While his wife Elizabeth continues to struggle with dementia and experiences brief bursts of clarity, proprietor Nick Laine fights to prevent the bank from seizing the property. He has been having an affair with one of the renters, Mrs. Neilsen, but is she what he truly wants?
The offspring of Nick and Elizabeth have their share of issues as well. Gene struggles with the demon of drink and has zero direction in life, and Marianne is unmarried and five months pregnant. In a plot reminiscent of Eugene O'Neill, visitors and various bizarre locals come and go, each with their own mysteries and backstories. Their secrets, which range from incarceration to blackmail to morphine addiction, are slowly exposed against the evocative music of Bob Dylan.
