Major Force

Family that needs desperately to spend some quality time together with workaholic dad, escapes to the mountains for a ski vacation. Freak act of nature turns a special moment into a eye-opening revelation for mom and the kids. A dark comedy that hits home. Has one of the best endings I've seen all year. Worth the subtitles.
