Midwinter written by Mary Dale McClure and directed by Professor Ashley Sarver, is about a group of young women who find themselves trapped at a station on Christmas Eve because of a snowstorm. They are all from different parts of the world, but they have one thing in common: the chaos of the world has affected each of them deeply. As they're waiting, they get to know one another and end up talking about Mary and the birth of Jesus. They are drawn together and find joy as they each realize the true meaning of Christmas and that Mary is a role model. Classic Christmas hymns such as "O Come O Come Emmanuel" and "In the Bleak Midwinter" along with many more are featured.
