Annie Wilcox is on the run from a psychopathic mother and a sleepy Southern Ontario town. In the early 1970’s, in the dry and arid flat lands of Utah, Annie finds herself stuck in a lone trailer with an ageing Navajo woman and an ex-heroin addict. Between fleeting memories of her tyrannical mother and the steady, unrelenting call of her Ontario birthplace, Annie strives to find herself again amidst the spiritual voice of the desert.

Part psychological horror and part historical fiction, Ninth River is the story of truly human characters that strive to put themselves back together when faced with oppression. Amidst two timelines, it traces Annie’s journey from Ontario to the South West and details the odd yet endearing people she befriends along the way. Through the psychological struggle to regain her lost emotion, Annie will be faced with the decision to leave her past behind, or follow in the foot-steps of her psychotic and disturbed mother.
