you ever been really angry with your parents? So angry that you just
had to leave the house? Well, that's what happens to Tony Laporte
one snowy night. Tony is more than a bit spoiled. His parents
had worked hard to give Tony everything they could. Unfortunately,
he now expects to have everything his own way. Including being allowed
to keep the stray dog he brought home. When his parents tell him
he cannot keep the dog, Tony runs out of the house, jumps into his mother's
car and takes off. Tony doesn't even have a driver's license but
he doesn't care. Also, it's snowing like crazy and no one in his
right mind would head out in this weather. But Tony feels he can
do anything. He even picks up a hitchhiker who turns out to be a
teenage girl. Tony regrets picking her up since he quickly grows
to dislike her. And then the unthinkable happens. Tony loses
control of the car and wrecks the car. Now the two teens are stranded
in a rural area in the middle of a blizzard. Days will pass as they
try to survive. What will happen to them? Will they find a
way to safety?
