They are not able to depart because a bad snowstorm makes the coach pull over.
One of the women is Ruthie, a Christian mentor and the oldest of the four. In her early seventies, she is a cheerful and caring person who offers the other women shelter at her cottage.
While there, Issy, the youngest of the characters at eighteen, has an emotional breakdown. Issy has low self-esteem and harbors shame and guilt, but this unexpected meeting brings her resolution.
It also affects the other two women, Conchetta, a society woman in her fifties, and forty-year-old Jamaica, who wants to be a singer. When Issy breaks down, it results in the other women also sharing their hidden feelings.
Although the four come from different backgrounds and seem to have little in common, after hearing Ruthie share her story and testimony of how the Lord helped her through a tremendous trial, they are all so inspired that they come together to know the Lord.
