Drifting Snow follows two strangers, Joanne (Sonja Smits) and Chris (Jonas Bonnetta), who make the best of a nighttime car accident by sharing a road trip together the next day. As a snow storm rolls across their route, their past year in Prince Edward County floats through each of their minds. After losing her husband John (Colin Mochrie) a year ago, Joanne faces the rituals of remote rural life on her own. Processing the loss of his mother by taking care of her old home in the country with his sister (Rachel Bonnetta), Chris struggles to convince his girlfriend (Jess Salguiero) to join him outside the city. As their journey together unfolds, their drifting memories reveal parallel experiences, helping each of them shift the focus of their destination.
