There's an element of truth in the old tales that were once shared around the warmth of a raging fire. For early man everything that happened in the natural world was controlled by unseen beings. From them came the legends and myths of gods that roamed the world. Sadly with the advent of modern technology the old gods have been forgotten, relegated to the shadowy realm of the past. Yet some refuse to rest easy in their obscurity, choosing instead to make their presence known.
As a winter storm rages around them, the employees of the call center where she works can only watch helplessly as their numbers dwindle. The building they inhabit stands on hallowed ground that was once occupied by a one room school house that burned to the ground during a similar storm over a hundred years before. The ghosts of the children who perished in that fire appear, and the call center workers find themselves trapped in a ghostly battle between the past and the present, between good and evil, between fire and ice.
Cut off from the outside world, stalked by the ghosts of the past, the survivors are forced to abandon the safety of a building that has been stressed to the breaking point.
But how does one escape a winter storm?
