Product Description:

Three families living in a rural Vermont community struggle with loss while allowing the delicate hands of time to gradually ease their sorrows in director Dorothy Lyman's poetic drama. Sgt. Claire Rodman (Ed Blunt) has just returned home from the Iraq War suffering a permanent hand injury, and as he slips into a helpless state of self-pity, his sister dutifully cares for their dying mother. In time, Sgt. Rodman's despondence drives a bitter wedge between the two siblings. Meanwhile, housekeeper Kathy McClellan struggles to maintain her relationship to her two grown children, Carissa and Glen. But while Glen's paranoid rants about the war seem like nonsense to many, the truth is they contain an explosive secret. Over on a neighboring farm, Nan (Dorothy Lyman) and her partner, Sandra (Dey Young), find their regular routine interrupted by the sudden appearance of Sandra's daughter, Enid, who isn't her usual self following a recent encounter with "the light." As the snow continues to fall, each family will confront their issues while discovering that nature really can ease sorrow.

Product Description:

A meteor shower lights up the winter sky over a rural Vermont community, illuminating the lives of three disparate families. Sgt. Claire Rodman (Ed Blunt) has returned from Iraq, his mind grappling with the meaning of his permanent hand injuries. His sister dutifully cares for their dying mother. St. Claire's selfish grief and anger comes between the siblings, compounding the Rodman family's despondency. Housekeeper Kathy McClellan struggles with her grown children, Carissa, and Glen, but Glen's paranoid
delusions about war contains an explosive secret. The life of Nan (Dorothy Lyman), a neighboring farmer and writer, and her partner's Sandra (Dey Young), is interrupted by the unexpected appearance of Sandra's daughter, Enid, a young woman disoriented after an encounter with “the light.” The Northern Kingdom brings these families together to examine loss, ordinary and dramatic, and the way
nature can resolve sorrow, even in the depths of winter. Talented ensemble cast says NY Times
