COLD SNAP is just a simple love story, as complicated as some simple love stories can be that include abuse, addictions and the saga of a powerful family. When Annie Johnson and Hunter Boyd, bright, privileged and attractive, meet and fall in love as students at a college in Iowa in 1964, they are unaware how the secrets of the abuse they've suffered will inform, infuse, and color their choices, bringing them together and driving them apart over the next 50 years.
