When a ferocious blizzard hits a Midwestern town without warning, a young teacher and her students are left trapped in a one-room schoolhouse. Miss Blake arrives in the morning concerned with controlling her rambunctious charges and keeping her courtship out of the town gossip, but when the storm hits, it's the rapidly dwindling fuel for the stove that becomes crucial. Unlikely students rise to the occasion as they all face a life-and-death decision: should they stay in the schoolhouse and risk freezing, or venture out into a storm so brutal that they've seen locals lose their bearings--and even their sanity? A heartrending drama based on the events of the 1888 "Children's Blizzard."
