Belle didn’t think her winter break plans could get any worse. After forcing herself to leave campus and go back to her hometown of Starling, a place where she endured years of torment by her mother, she gets caught in a chaotic snowstorm, causing her to crash her car in the middle of nowhere with no place to go except for the cabin she discovers in the woods. Upon entering the cabin, Belle is confronted by a man with a deformed face and numerous secrets.
Trapped by the storm raging outside, Belle is forced to stay with the man, prompting her to discover more things out of the ordinary. Voices come from objects, the man guards an enchanted rose in the backroom, and Belle is determined to find out the truth behind all of those mysterious things. Gradually, Belle starts to enjoy her time at the cabin with the man, who gradually opens up about his past as she confides in him about her own. She begins to see him for the man that he is on the inside, not his distorted appearance and wants to help him return to normal.
As secrets become revealed and troubles from their pasts come back to haunt them, they find themselves becoming closer, falling in love through the midst of the chaos surrounding them. However, Belle knows that the fate of their future hangs in the balance as the enchanted rose slowly dies, and his chance of turning back to normal gradually diminishes…
