All that separates the students of Eastbrook High from the freedom of Christmas break is one day of final exams. The light snowfall that Friday, however, soon escalates into a threatening storm that cancels school and leaves six students stranded in the dark gym. Despite personal conflicts, the teens revel in having the school to themselves, staging an impromptu talent show and a culinary class feast. Then, a knock on the door from outside the school brings an entirely new element to the night.
Forced to rely on each other, the teens create friendships, test wills, and reveal secrets as they strive to survive the night alone. Written and directed by Brittany Goodwin, Secrets in the Snow deals with issues facing contemporary teenagers and families, including body image, identity crisis, bankruptcy, military leave, and finding answers to life's struggles through Christianity.

Most viewers will relate to this striking film! For anyone who has experienced peer pressure, or kept difficult experiences private, or dealt with high school problems, you will see yourself in this movie.
A big snowstorm hits just before the holidays and the kids are scheduled to be sent home early. For some kids, their parents don't get the message right away and the kids are whisked off to the library. The power begins to fail due to the storm, and then the generator goes out and the kids and one teacher find blankets to huddle in and stay warm. This storm results in the kids becoming better acquainted and sharing secrets, including a boy's father dying in Iraq and they learn about a diabetic boy.
The themes include confiding in others and that there are not many differences in people; that everyone battles some sort of problem. We award this wonderful film five Doves, our best rating and we recommend it for all ages.
