Cold Storage, Alaska, is a remote fishing outpost where you just might catch a King Salmon if you’re zen enough to wait for it. Clive ‘The Milkman’ McCahon returns to his tiny Alaska hometown after a seven-year jail stint for dealing coke. He has a lot to make up to his younger brother, Miles, who has dutifully been taking care of their ailing mother. But Clive doesn’t realise the trouble he’s bringing home. He’s reformed now, but his vengeful old business partner is hot on his heels, a stick-in-the-mud State Trooper who’s dying to bust Clive for narcotics
