The dream of a lifetime….. 14 year old Stefan is selected for a sci-fi movie role at a ski resort in  Slovakia… Actually it was his friends’ dream, yet Stefan was chosen.
Lucky… right?  Maybe… maybe not…
Thrown together with Raine, a spoiled 13 year old star, 9 year Jeremy and trained wolves, Stefan tries his best to succeed. Yet, Raine has other ideas, demanding, threatening…. could she really have Stefan thrown off the movie set?  After a long day of filming and numerous mistakes, Stefan’s confidence is shaken. Leaving the young stars on their own, the frustrated film crew head into town for dinner. Planning only to be gone a short while, all should be well.
However, a chain of events, starting with an avalanche throws the group together in a battle of survival. As the young stars battle being cut off, they realize the trained wolves are not the only ones nearby. (Booktalk written by Catherine Ryan- GSF committee/ New England College)
