Cold could save their daughter. It could also freeze their hearts.
With their young daughter in surgery, Ellie and Jane play a playful and poignant waiting game, with the future of child and their relationship at stake. As the timer ticks, they face questions of science, faith, and their weirdest pet peeves. A socially awkward nurse could help them beat the odds, but Jane's faith in an experimental treatment , and the realization that nobody wins this in this game, could leave them all out in the cold.
