Movie Info

During a winter of record-breaking cold, a blackout of apocalyptic proportions strands a group of Brooklynites in a remote country farmhouse. At first, it's a party: drugs, sex, and yoga. But as the days go on and the food supply dwindles, they turn against one another, and gradually are forced into a confrontation with their mortality. (c) Official Site

The film's interests are mainly relegated to wallowing in the frigid-starvation-suffering of its protagonists.
