A group of kids on Christmas break decide to stage a mock war — the “war of the toques” — in the form of an epic, all-consuming snowball fight. The rules are simple: one team defends a snow fort, the other storms it. As the battle escalates and bad-blood between friends develops, a sudden tragedy teaches the children — and those watching — an invaluable lesson about the vanity of war. This poignant and touching children's classic still resonates today as an affecting allegory about peace, as well as a celebration of snowy Canadian winters!
