As the town loses its freedom, the community church burns down, homes of the leaders of the opposition are vandalized, and all Christmas trees and decorations are forbidden under threat of punishment. New regulations are put in place. Schools are taken over and their curriculum is mandated by the Overseer. The people become distrustful of one another, but a new strength begins to grow.
A “Winter Celebration” is held on the 21st of December and everyone in town is required to attend. The bonfire takes on a life of its own, and a demonic cloud of smoke hovers over the crowd and curls and swirls over their heads.
As people try to run in fear, a previously unseen army appears, imprisoning most of the people inside the park where the celebration is. A few escape to a wreck of a house on the outskirts of town.
The Overseer follows them there in secret, and after a struggle, kidnaps Brown Eyes and heads up the side of the snowy mountain where a showdown occurs. The child's life is threatened. The outcome of the struggle determines who has the Victory.
It is a story of faith and patriotism, people working together to rid the town of the evil.
