Ferne Lynch hates living in Alaska. She wants nothing more than to get away and explore the world. That doesn't seem like a realistic possibility, though, when her parents seem to be doing whatever it takes to keep her at home.
When they finally go on vacation and leave Ferne alone to tend to the homestead, she can't resist the urge to have a little fun. Building a snowman and wishing on a star feels like child's play until a mysterious man shows up on Ferne's doorstep in the middle of the night.
After listening to his outlandish story, Ferne can't quite figure out if their meeting was by chance or if something magical is happening.
