An American sergeant escapes a bloody massacre by German troops and flees into the fierce winter landscape. Wounded and seeking shelter he comes across a woman praying in a small barn. She tries to help but the German soldiers are in pursuit and closing in. What can they do?

Film is loosely based on the Malmedy Massacre which occurred in the Battle of the Bulge during World War II.

While shooting on location in Massachusetts, the production was hit by extremely heavy snowfalls. The snow covered woods and hills became authentic stand-ins for the fierce Belgium winter during the actual Battle of the Bulge.

    I was part of this film as an actor and gun wrangler. So, my comments may be tainted. I have been in three films. This film, "The Snow Field" by Peter Coston, "Race" by Brent Lestage and "The Fallen" by Ari Taub's. All three films were WWII based. As part of the Living History Association's WWII Committee, we get called very often to do films like this. Peter was a pleasure to work with. Very professional and willing to accommodate the people he works with. This film has a lot of heart. Like the "RACE", "The Snow Field" puts you right in there with the people and makes you feel what they feel. Very close and personal. Excellent work. Very authentic and very well filmed. The "Black and White" feature adds drama and atmosphere to the film. Peter Coston is one director I'd love to do another film with.
