A family-a mother, a father, and their ten-year-old son-have come all the way from Florida to the Appalachian foothills to experience the wonder of a snowy weekend. But when a blizzard suddenly descends, the family finds themselves trapped outside, disoriented in the whiteout and the waist-deep snowdrifts. Panicked, exhausted, and freezing, they cry out for help. From off in the distance at a nearby farm, a cattle dog hears their faint cries, and she turns her attention from her daily driving of cattle to saving the family. This stirring tale is both a compelling story of survival and a meditation on the tremendous will of man’s best friend.
