Once a successful surgeon, Frederick Welin now lives in self-imposed exile on an island in the Swedish archipelago.  Nearly twelve years have passed since he was disgraced for attempting to cover up a tragic mishap on the operating table.  One morning in the depths of winter, he sees a hunched figure struggling towards him across the ice.  His past is about to catch up with him.
