Synopsis

Two strangers take refuge in a small cabin during a blizzard and, despite their many differences, discover that fate has brought them together. It's Thanksgiving Day and both Dr. Catherine Howard and Robert Woodward wind up at the same medical facility -- one still missing a loved one, the other visiting a dying spouse. Although they have lived within miles of each other for years, they have never met. Outside, snow has begun to fall and, despite a brusque first encounter, Catherine offers Robert a ride home when she learns that he is stranded. The pair get off to a rocky start as Catherine tries to maneuver the car through what is now a blizzard and Robert barks directions. Suddenly, the car careens off the road into a snow bank. They trudge through the blizzard and discover an empty cabin. They wait out the storm and begin to break through each other's shells.
