When a window washer falls to his death from the tallest building in Minneapolis, it forces nine strangers to face the slippery and terrifying reality of living in a world made of ice. Loosely and lyrically based on actual events, WHAT MAY FALL explores what keeps us grounded when everything can change in an instant.
