One woman's rescue changes her life, and the life of her savior...but which one needs the most saving?
Our most flippant choices sometimes have the largest impact. What begins as a spur-of-the-moment adventure in the Canadian Arctic turns into sudden disaster, forcing young photographer Julia to abandon all hope. Just when Julia believes all is lost, along comes Malaya, an eleven-year-old girl who takes Julia back to her Inuit community. There the situation flips, and it's Julie's turn to do the rescuing. She sees Malaya's troubled childhood as a mirror of her own and refuses to stand by and do nothing. Starring Clea DuVall (Argo, American Horror Story) and newcomer Katie May Dunford, whose dynamic chemistry is palpable, director Lori Stoll's Heaven's Floor reveals the profound effect two people can have on each other and the beauty of finding a savior when you need one most. - Cassia Homann
