When a storm strands passengers in the Atlanta airport on December 24th, several travelers accept a stranger’s offer of a ride to Asheville. As the five adults and two children pile into Lisa Barone’s vintage VW microbus, she promises them that they will be in Asheville by dinnertime. The first few hours of the trip are uncomfortable as the riders adjust to their close proximity to each other, but the drive is smooth, with little trouble from snow or icy roads. That changes shortly after the van crosses into North Carolina. The travelers encounter whiteout conditions and an avalanche that leaves them stranded. Taking shelter in an abandoned cabin, they have a Christmas Eve that none of them could have anticipated.
