Matt Davidson (Aidan Quinn) and his son are looking for a couple of snowmobilers lost in the woods. On the way, they spot a couple of horses stranded on the snowy mountainside. Money is tight for the family and Matt is looking to sell the place especially for his wife (Kari Matchett). The daughter Nikki (MacKenzie Porter) is concerned about the horses and hates selling. She refuses to give up. Simon is an amateur filmmaker who likes her. He starts doing reports on the horses. The SPCA sends Dr. Kumar to examine the horses but he's more experienced with marine animals. He relents to give them 4 days while they arrange for an airlift. Animal lover Fiona comes to help the horses recover. The group of environmentalists don't really get along with the old style Davidsons after the lost of logging in the area. When the doctor claims that they're too weak to fly out, Nikki starts digging a path out of the mountain by hand.
This is a compelling movie about the small guys against great odds. It is inspiration and heart warming. It's kind of like 'Big Miracle' where people got whales out of being iced up. It is based on a real story but like most of these movies, lots of stuff are changed. I don't have any problems with that as long as it's in the service for a better movie. The second half is a bit anti-climatic. The story really peaks when Nikki starts digging. The movie tries to amp up the last half with the wolf attack but it's a bit too fake.
