It is just days before the Christmas of 1918 in Myersdale, a picturesque township nestled in the dense snow-covered mountains of western Pennsylvania's coal country.
Anna, an idealistic nine-year-old, has an especially close relationship with her father, Joseph; a hardworking engineer on the B&O Railroad.
A series of puzzling dreams shared by Joseph and Anna mystifies them both. Their search for the meaning of these dreams leads them to share an emotional and bonding Christmas experience. The experience, born from a common vision in the night, will forever change their feelings toward the holiday and each other.
One very special Christmas shared between a father and daughter. A brief moment in time, swept away like the footprints in the snow from a cruel December wind. A Christmas experience so moving, so compelling, that it lives deep within Anna's heart for the next eighty years.
