After one too many failings, Parker Sloane gives up his job smuggling cash for a drug cartel and returns to his childhood home in the woods of New England. There he finds that his family is just as twitchy, desperate, paranoid, and unpredictable as the underworld types he just escaped.
Now Parker has to manage homicidal family dysfunction. His tyrannical stepfather, seething younger brother, newly evangelical mother, and alluring younger half-sister Rita each have demons they never exorcised.
Delicately but disastrously, Parker attempts to keep his family from imploding, unaware that each has their own plans for escape or vengeance. The Moon in Deep Winter combines the dark comedy of the Coen brothers with a fast-paced thriller
