It is 1910 in a tiny arctic cabin near Giron in Swedish Lapland and 14 year old Sig sits alone in a cabin with the corpse of his father.
His father had fallen through the ice a short time ago and Sig sits waiting for his step-mother and older sister to bring help from the town.
There is a knock at the door and Sig opens it.
Instead of help from the town, a huge bear like man forces his way into the cabin.
His name is Wolff and he claims that Sig’s father owes him a share of a fortune in gold. Wolff is threatening to do something terrible to Sig and his family if he doesn’t get the gold.
Sig has no idea where the gold is but he does know that there is a loaded revolver in the cabin store room.
What is the mystery of the hidden gold and will Sig end up using the revolver to protect himself and his family?
