To amuse themselves during the winter school break, the kids in a small village decide to have a massive snowball fight. Luke and Sophie, both 11 years old, become the leaders of the opposing sides. Sophie and her cohort defend an elaborate snow fort against the assault of Luke’s horde. Whichever side occupies the fort at the end of the winter break, wins. But what starts out as pure youthful fun and enthusiasm deteriorates into a more serious conflict. By the end however, joy is restored when the children team up!
Enjoy refreshments provided by David’s Tea at the Kamloops Art Gallery. Steeped Tea from 10am-12pm. SNOWTIME! starts at noon.
