     Christmas in a small, snowy cabin in the mountains sounds like an idyllic scenario. And so, nothing stands in the way of journalist Richard, his children Mia and Aidan and his new girlfriend Grace on their way to a harmonious celebration of love.

When Richard is forced to travel to town for a few days on business and leaves his family alone in the mountains, new, eerie events happen every day that reinforce Mia and Aidan's belief that something is wrong with Grace.
