One year later Charlie is struggling with his dad's death. He builds a snowman and sits in his room playing his dad's harmonica. The harmonica turns out to be magical and it brings his dad back to life as the snowman (think Jack Frost the cartoon).

Charlie is at first frightened of his snowman/dad and hides from him and even tries to melt him with a hairdryer. But Jack Frost has snow-related skills that the young boy likes and they soon find common ground they never had when Jack was alive. They take on the local bullies in a snowball fight and escape in a fast sled ride. Jack also teaches Charlie to skate better and play better hockey.
