The play centers around young Tiffany, fleeing a volatile situation in her life and finds herself cold and alone in a stranger’s detached garage during Tulsa’s Great Ice Storm of 2007. An unsuspecting Miss Alma finds the girl and their paths collide. What begins as a tense hostage situation, quickly becomes a fight for survival. Forced to work together the unlikely pair will do more than keep each other warm. Each alone in the world, together they hopefully break through the ice.
