He spends his days on the mountain stealing expensive skiing equipment from the wealthy tourists and reselling it to the locals. His sister Louise is reckless and irresponsible, but her dependency on his enterprise gives Simon a sense of purpose. When Simon becomes fascinated by an English woman on the slopes and begins working with a crooked British seasonal worker, he falls into dangerous territory that will alter his relationship with Louise.
