All that separates the students of Eastbrook High from the freedom of Christmas break is one day of final exams. The light snowfall that Friday, however, soon escalates into a threatening storm that cancels school and leaves six students stranded in the dark gym. Despite personal conflicts, the teens revel in having the school to themselves, staging an impromptu talent show and a culinary class feast. Then, a knock on the door from outside the school brings an entirely new element to the night.
Forced to rely on each other, the teens create friendships, test wills, and reveal secrets as they strive to survive the night alone. Written and directed by Brittany Goodwin, Secrets in the Snow deals with issues facing contemporary teenagers and families, including body image, identity crisis, bankruptcy, military leave, and finding answers to life's struggles through Christianity.
