In Lusty Winter, Braithwaite portrays the contemporary world as a place of luxury, ambition, and endless potential where survival is difficult and often impossible. The person trying to survive the lusty winter of his life is George Wilson, a 65-year-old who is hale, hearty, and full of hate for modern society. Escaping from city life and his ambitious celebrity wife, Wilson sets himself up in an isolated cabin in northern Ontario. However, the detached lifestyle he seeks is continuously thwarted by rocky love affairs and violent snowmobilers.
