At the mercy of a crippling snowstorm that shuts down all the roads, his only hope is his colleague, Dr. Finlay. As the storm worsens and knocks out both the power and the phone lines, Dr. Finlay works his innovative healing skills to care for his patient. Meanwhile, Dr. Cameron, in his bedridden state, is finally forced to acknowledge the true feelings of his long-time housekeeper, Janet, as well as face his own faults and weaknesses and do what he can to redeem himself before he succumbs to his ailing health.
