IMDB page

Kissed by Winter is a story about one of the efficient and successful people, Victoria, who one day is suddenly thrown out of her regular life for a period of time. The film tells the story of two deaths, one is suspicious, the other one unacceptable. Victoria starts a new life as a physician in a wintery Norwegian village. Here she absorbs herself in her job, in order to avoid her memories.

Early one winter morning, a young man is found dead in the snow, and the local sheriff presumes he may have been hit by the plow of a snow truck. As Victoria gets entangled in the fate of the dead boy, she gets close to both his parents and the suspect, Kai. In the encounter with the dead man and the village inhabitants, the main character proves to be a greater mystery than the case under investigation. The truth about the boy in the snow, and Victorias own past, is slowly but steadily whirled up to the surface.

In Norwegian with Czech subtitles.
