THIN ICE is a dark comedy about a small time insurance agent (Kinnear) looking for a way to jump-start his business, reunite with his estranged wife (Thompson) and escape the frigid Wisconsin weather. This self-proclaimed master of spin believes that salesmanship is all about selling a story -- all he needs is a sucker willing to buy it. He hits pay dirt with a lonely retired farmer (Arkin) who is sitting on something much bigger than an insurance commission. However, his attempt to con the old man spins out of control when a nosy, unstable locksmith's (Crudup) temper dramatically ups the stakes trapping him in a madcap spiral of deceit and peril.
