The Big White

Paul Barnell (Robin Williams) is in big trouble. He's up to his eyeballs in debt, his wife (Holly Hunter) is going slowly insane and an ambitious insurance agent (Giovanni Ribisi) is more than reluctant to pay out a million dollar claim on Paul's missing brother. When suddely fate seems to smile on him and he finds a dead stranger in the snow...unfortunately he's not the only one interested in this sub-zero corpse. A black comedy on ice.
