Synopsis by Nathan Southern
Acclaimed French-Canadian filmmaker Christian Duguay (The Art of War) directs the 1994 made-for-television feature Snowbound: The Jim and Jennifer Stolpa Story, a harrowing real-life horror tale starring Doogie Howser, M.D.'s Neil Patrick Harris, Kelli Williams of Picket Fences, and Family Ties alum Michael Gross. Based on real-life events, this inspirational story recounts the travails of married couple Jim (Harris) and Jennifer Stolpa (Williams), who -- along with infant Clayton -- run headfirst into cataclysm when they become stranded thousands of miles from home in an icy wilderness. With only the barest supplies and their own courage to sustain them, the family struggles to stay afloat. Jim is ultimately forced to leave Jennifer and Clayton at a frozen shelter, and trek some 50 miles to solicit a rescue before death knocks on the door.
