Cold December is a 2007 drama about a man who decides to change everything about his life. To most people, Chris Payton (Liam Fountain) appears to have a good life. He lives with his beautiful wife, Kate (Alyssa Roehrenbeck), and works a stable nine-to-five job, maintaining a balance of responsibility and fun. Chris is not happy, however. Instead he feels dissatisfied and trapped, hoping for something more from his ordinary life. It isn't until one December that Chris knows he has to finally take action. Once he sets out to change his entire life, though, Chris discovers that it isn't as easy as he expected. He winds up in a fight with Kate, further alienating himself from the life he is now afraid to leave. As Christmas draws closer, Chris has to come to terms with the difference between the difficulty of choosing his own path or letting his life unfold before his eyes.
