When their town goes into a deep freeze and everyone is stuck inside, people start to lose their connection to the world. Words vanish for a librarian, food loses taste for a chef, and a mail carrier has no mail to deliver. Two friends work to find one-another again to rediscover their town, so that everyone they love will be able to gather again.

Two brave adventurers want to help bring the town back together again, but first they will need to find one another.
