A Christmas Snow:

For Kathleen, (Catherine Mary Stewart) Christmas has always been an unwelcome reminder of her father’s abandonment almost 30 years ago. Although she has tried to forget her past, it has not forgotten her, and in the days leading up to Christmas an unforgiving blizzard traps her in her own home with two unlikely roommates. Sam (Muse Watson), a gentle older man Kathleen took in for the night and Lucy (Cameron ten Napel), the daughter of her soon to be fiancé (Anthony Tyler Quinn) bring her face to face with the hurts of her past.  Will she be able to let go and grab hold of a life changing forgiveness or will she continue to be haunted by the pain of the past?
