A fierce North Dakota storm screams outside his house on the edge of town, while inside, Sheriff Caleb Stenesrude tries to tend the near-frozen mother and boy he's rescued from the blizzard.
When the woman lets out a piercing cry of labor, Caleb realizes this will be a Christmas Eve like no other.
Caleb and the town of Soldahl take Johanna Carlson and her two children into their hearts, but Johanna keeps her distance, afraid to tell anyone the truth about her life.
