In the winter of 1934, the Great Depression is still frothing in America. In a dilapidated board-house in Duluth, Minnesota, the effects are felt the most powerfully. Owner Nick Laine fights to stop the bank from seizing the property as his wife Elizabeth continues to struggle with dementia and occasionally shows signs of a clear mind. Although he has been having an affair with Mrs. Neilsen, one of the renters, is she really what he wants?
There are problems with Nick and Elizabeth's children as well. Gene has a problem with drinking and no clear direction in life, and Marianne is unmarried and five months pregnant. Visitors and various eccentric locals come and go, each with their own secrets and backstories. Amidst the vivid music of Bob Dylan, their secrets—which range from imprisonment to blackmail to morphine addiction—are steadily revealed.
