Ten guests have checked into the Mitchell Inn in the Catskills of New York just in time before a winter storm hits. The staff is limited to the owner and his son as the other employees couldn’t make it in due to road closures. Nevertheless, the guests are told not to worry. There was plenty of food and firewood to last for several days and just to settle in and enjoy the weekend. The first night is pleasant with dinner and drinks together. But in the middle of the night, the power goes out, a scream goes ignored- and a body is found in the morning. No one can be sure if it is an accident or a murder. That is, until it happens again. And again. The group is dwindling in number and in sanity. All they can do is stay together and try not to be the next victim until the storm is over.
