Winter Passing is a dramatic comedy charting the fractious reunion of an estranged father and daughter. Struggling twenty-something actress Reese Holden has been promised $100,000 for publication of love letters written by her legendary, but reclusive father Don, to his equally revered late wife, Reese's mother. In search of these letters, Reese treks from New York City back home to Michigan, where she finds her father in flagrant disregard of his own health and living with two younger housemates: practical former grad student Shelly and would-be musician Corbit. Though no angel herself, Reese does not approve of this ad hoc "family." Little by little she come to appreciate her unlikely new "siblings" and as secrets are revealed, Reese comes to terms with her father and their shared past and future.

"This is the kind of movie routinely dismissed as too slow and quiet by those who don't know it is more exciting to listen than to hear."

- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"A portrait of grieving artists, trying to get back to the quotidian business of suffering."

- Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times
