Six rebellious teens learn how fast their comfortable, self-centered lives can transform into a life-changing lesson of survival as an ill-prepared afternoon snowboarding trip turns tragic with life-threatening injury and sub-zero temperatures. Discord and teenage angst poison the atmosphere of a small Christian school whose families are soon to learn the importance of faith and unity to their very existence.
There is a lot of drama in this movie, teens who act like teens and get grouchy with each other and go through growing pains. They also face a dilemma when they go snowboarding with a character named Josh and a teen they call Flounders falls and breaks his ankle. With night falling in the remote location known as Sterling, Alaska, and the temperatures rapidly falling, several of them are trapped in the woods with a few of the teens heading out to seek emergency help. The wolves are nearby as well and the parents have to turn to God in prayer as they wait for a long night to end and they hope for a miracle.
It should be noted there are some utterances of strong language in the film along with some name calling and attitudes of rebellion. Still, the ultimate theme is one of redemption and there is nothing which crosses the line of our acceptability so we are pleased to award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this film for ages twelve plus.
