"Winter Passing" is a dramatic comedy that charts the fractious reunion of an estranged father and daughter. Struggling twenty-something actress, Reese Holden has been promised $100,000 by book editor Lori Lansky if Reese can secure for publication the love letters written by her legendary, but reclusive father Don, to his equally revered late wife -- Reese's mother. Suddenly, highly motivated Reese treks from New York City to Michigan, where she finds Don in flagrant disregard of his own health and living with two younger housemates: practical former grad student Shelly and would-be musician, Corbit. Reese, though no angel herself, does not approve of this ad hoc family. But she comes to appreciate her unlikely new "siblings," and as secrets are revealed, comes to terms with her father and their shared past and future.
