Joanna is going through a hard time: Half a year ago, her beloved dog died, and two months later, she separated from her fiance because he cheated on her. Now she works like a demon in her job as a Vet to forget her feelings. Returning from a difficult foaling in the middle of a late November night on Long Island, she gets stuck in an early blizzard. With her last ounce of strength, she manages to reach a house, but the man who gives her shelter for the night treats her like an unwelcome disease. As she has no choice, she adapts to his rough manners by being impolite herself. Sparks fly, and the night ends with a rescued puppy and a power failure, but this is only the beginning of her troubles as Christmas approaches.
