Caught in the vicious ice storm of 1998, would you survive?

A severe ice storm hits Montreal and parts of eastern Canada. Ethan’s dad is in Toronto on business and his step-mom, Sylvie, is is going to have a baby. The weather is so bad his dad can’t fly home. When the power goes off in their building, they try to adjust, but it’s cold despite all the blankets, and it’s dark despite candles and flashlights. Sylvie suddenly feels unwell and his elderly neighbour, Mrs. Greenbaum, has been hurt. Is the baby coming early?  Can he get help for Mrs. Greenbaum in time? How will they survive?
