It's the Friday after Thanksgiving, and the turkey's still frozen solid. A freak ice storm has paralyzed the town, so the Fuller family is forced to hang out in their basement by the wood stove. Sissy and her husband are two days late, and the cat is missing. A family-oriented drama about the Fullers getting through this holiday, Die Like a Dog in the Middle of the Road combines humor and hope, all the while coping with a serious family problem.
The cast: Al Lien as Leo, Nan Worthington as Rae, Cait Watkins as Traci, Caiti Anthony as Delores, Jim Carpenter as Ed, Kendra Wright as Sissy, and Jason Kwiatkowski as Dale.
