Caught in a blizzard five days before Christmas, pregnant 23-year-old Lisa and her friend Brad, a professional snowboarder, take shelter at The Rosemont. A once-great winter resort, The Rosemont has seen better days. After losing her daughter and granddaughter, the cantankerous owner Josephine has let it fall into disrepair. But now, stranded by the blizzard and with Lisa giving birth, everyone comes together to provide what they all need most—a family.

Dove Review

Here is a heartwarming story about dealing with one’s past and future. Josephine lost her husband and, 18 years ago, her daughter and granddaughter. She has become a recluse in the big old resort she owns. But when a couple show up at her doorstep in a blizzard, things change.

Lisa has problems, including being thrown out of her parents’ house when they find out she is pregnant by an older man, and finding out the so-called boyfriend has sold the baby she is expecting. While trying to get to Denver, she must leave the bus that cannot go any farther because of bad weather. She asks a stranger, Brad, if she can get a ride with him to get to her destination.

The two find themselves in a snowbank and seek shelter at a once-prominent resort, The Rosemont. The two young people, along with the owner Josephine and Abe, her friend of many years, get a new look at life that will renew all of them.

This movie has a lot of redeeming qualities about facing life and knowing there is a reason behind things that happen that may never be known, but that change peoples’ lives. We also want to warn you that there is a scene of a baby being born that is tastefully done. We award “The Rosemont” with the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages 12+.
