SYNOPSIS:
A record snowstorm strikes while a group of Brooklynites slumber at their farmhouse yoga retreat one winter, blocking roads, shutting off power, and turning the drug, sex, and privileged organic lifestyle they are accustomed to into a back-to-basics fight for survival. Running out of both food and time, the group finds themselves forced to face the harsh realities within themselves and of those around them as alliances crumble, ideals are tested, and they begin to accept their mortality. Filmed in Orange County, with brilliant wintery landscapes and a quiet, realistic approach, First Winter Benjamin Dickinson’s directorial debut, shows what happens when one is pushed to their limit under extraordinary circumstances. –Samantha Yellin
