  Description     The film  
The Lebanese Canadian filmmaker Pierre Sidaoui remembers childhood winters in Lebanon. He nostalgically compares memories of small town Lebanon and his subsequent life in Canada. Falling snow used to be a magical event. As an adult in Montreal, Sidaoui has a different perspective on cold weather. A childhood painting and some family photos personalize the memories.
