Winter Thaw

Premiering Thanksgiving day (November 24) at 6 PM MT is BYUtv’s original TV film, Winter Thaw. Based on Leo Tolstoy’s short story, “Martin the Cobbler,” and starring John Rhys-Davies (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Lord of the Rings), this holiday special lovingly tells the story of personal transformation and forgiveness. In late nineteenth-century Russia, Martin Avdeitch is a humble shoemaker whose life has been characterized by grief. Through multiple experiences he finds the courage to look outside himself and trust in the goodness of God.
