SynopsisA young couple, John and Suzan, stranded in a remote village cut off from the outside world by blizzards are given warm hospitality in her charming little cottage by seemingly kind old lady, Mrs Latham. It is gradually revealed that, in the past, her cottage was the scene of an unsolved murder in which she may have been involved and that intriguingly Suzan bears an uncanny resemblance to the victim. This gives the play the germ of a Gothic feel and sets the scene for an exciting, at times gripping and ultimately heart-warming tale.
