It's Christmas Eve, and a snowstorm is blowing through the small town of Summit View. The roads are virtually empty, except for a group of vehicles that get stuck on a remote road on the outskirts of town. The seven people involved decide to take refuge in a nearby abandoned church. Those seven are: James, an ex-priest who is running away from his life and his vocation following the death of his wife and child; Darryl, an EMT who dreams of becoming a doctor, but who believes that dream will never materialize because of his dyslexia; wealthy married couple Drake and Madeleine, whose marriage and its problems are centered on money; newlyweds Nick and Christy, who find that they are arguing more and more ever since their wedding three days ago; and the only local among the bunch, Joe, who is separated from his wife Mary, largely because of their differing views of how to manage their family, most specifically in dealing with their autistic son, Matt.

I disagree with the 2 star review, yes it is a slow movie but it does actually have a point. Maybe you were just not paying attention. The freak snow storm was in the Pacific north west, as such it would be possible that the ladies insulin would have been chilled not frozen.... I understand that insulin can be refrigerated, NO? As for the walk to the town, I believe it was quite a distance, as the son walked for a long time and got lost in the woods, so maybe lesson learned there, stay put where everyone could be in one place, fire burning, sheltered and reasonably comfortable. Strangers sharing stories and wisdoms, and providing each other with a shoulder and support. I did find the idea that Matt would sneak out of his house a bit far fetched, but, since I do not have an autistic child, I do not fully understand how this would be portrayed in a character. The movie does have a point, when the final scenes are played out it becomes very clear when it comes to the ending. Possiblythe previous reviewer did not wait for the end of the movie to see the conclusion. Is this the absolute best Christmas movie out there? No, but it does share a message, it gives a person pause to reflect and maybe that is the point. Take the message from the movie an leave the sub-par bits behind!
