Dwindling clientele and those damn anti-smoking laws have finally forced veteran bar-owner Murray to close his remote mountain-town watering hole. But when a freak blizzard blows through, his hopes for a quiet closing are dashed when a disparate collection of dysfunctional misfits get stranded together in Murray’s crazy little pub. Between drinks and karaoke, bonds are formed, broken, and blown sky-high. A new life comes into the world, and an old one leaves. And when the plows finally arrive in the morning, no one goes home the same.
