Potem ko ju je z mamo na božični večer zapustil oče, Kathleen že 30 let ne praznuje več božiča. Nekaj dni pred prazniki mesto zajame snežni vihar, zaradi katerega Kathleen ostane ujeta v svoji hiši skupaj s prijaznim Samom in navihano Lucy. Zaradi njiju se bo zagrenjena Kathleen morala soočiti s svojo preteklostjo. Bo končno pozabila na pretekle dogodke in se predala prazničnemu vzdušju?
For the past 30 years, Kathleen has carried around the haunting memory of her father abandoning her and her mother on Christmas Eve. She blames her mother for that night and now refuses to celebrate Christmas at all. Although she tries to forget her past, it has not forgotten her. Because of a blizzard, Kathleen finds herself stuck in her home with two strangers during the days leading up to Christmas. Sam, a gentle older man Kathleen took in for the night, and Lucy, the daughter of her soon to be fiancé bring her face to face with the hurts of her past. She has to choose between letting go and grabbing hold of a life-changing forgiveness, or continuing to carry her pain and bitterness.
