It's 1973, and Ben and Elena Hodd are feeling the destabilizing wind of change from the sixties blowing through their wealthy suburb of New Canaan. Ben is caught between the comfort of home and the allure of his neighbour Jane Carver. His teenage daughter Wendy Hood is testing her sexual powers over Janey's son, while his son Paul persues a disinterested high school sweetheart. The night the ice storm sweeps into town, the members of the Hood family will transcend their tragi-comic pursuits, as they come to understand the delicate web of emotion and honor that binds them together, and which may eventually tear them apart.
