When he discovers that Catherine Allen (Hackett) and her son have been living in his cabin in the mountains he agrees to let them stay until after the winter. The two stragglers were abandoned by a guide who was taking them to Oregon. As the months pass, Catherine and Will form a bond that begins to stretch beyond friendship. Catherine, however, is on her way to Oregon to meet her husband there. Penny and Will must then decide if they want to break the rules and pursue a relationship with each other or if they must go their separate ways.
