From the doomed pine forests of the British Columbia interior comes an epic tale of three flawed and struggling characters bound by their attachment to a dying town. Short-staffed and cash-strapped, Maggie Evans owns the Beauty Creek Chronicle. Pensioner Nash Malone scavenges at the local landfill. Stevie Jeffers, newly single and determined not to uproot her children ever again, takes a job waiting tables and stakes her future on a town that might not survive the decade. When the desperate town council embraces a fast talking tourism developer they ignite an unanticipated clash of values that will shake the characters, and the community, to its core.
