Wilson Standish hasn’t been doing so well lately. His last book failed spectacularly with the critics for being too unoriginal, his marriage is slowly crumbling to pieces, and his latest attempt at writing a second novel has left him feeling defeated and hopeless. In a last-ditch effort to both save his career and his marriage, he takes his wife, Elsie, with him up to the cold, icy mountains of New Hampshire that they once loved to visit. Cooped up in the old rickety cabin, in which they once spent happier days, Wilson and Elsie soon both realize that being alone may not be enough to save what they love. To do so, they may need to work together.
