"Toronto doctor Helen Matthews (Patricia Clarkson [...]), mourning the death of her husband (Callum Keith Rennie), retreats to the isolated island cabin where they'd spent some of their most loving moments together. Her reminiscences are cut short when a mysterious man, Will (Scott Speedman), washes ashore, bleeding profusely from a gunshot wound. She tends to his injuries; he refuses to explain what happened. But when a nasty storm traps them on the island, and Will's would-be killer returns to finish the job, Helen and Will's ability to trust each other becomes a matter of survival."

"It [October Gale] has a thriller aspect, but I like to think of it as a thinking man or woman's thriller. That's the backdrop, but the overriding theme is loss. How do you survive a catastrophic loss? How do you move on from loss? Can you find new love, or new joy, in something unexpected?"
