Jack Frost is the lead singer in a rock band simply titled “The Jack Frost Band”, based in the fictional town of Medford, Colorado, who make their living performing blues covers and an assortment of their own songs in the hope of signing a record deal. He returns to his 11-year-old son Charlie, who has just returned from a snowball fight against local bully Rory Buck. After they build a snowman in their front yard, Jack gives him his best harmonica, which he got the day Charlie was born, jokingly telling him that it’s magical, and he will be able to hear it wherever he is. Jack promises his wife Gabby that he will attend his son’s hockey game, but misses it in favor of recording a new hit song “Don’t Lose Your Faith”. To make up for it, Jack then promises to take his family on a Christmas trip to the mountains, but is then called in on a gig that could make or break his career. On his way to the gig, Jack realizes his mistake and borrows his best friend (and the band’s keyboardist) Mac MacArthur’s car to go to the mountains to meet his family. Unfortunately, Jack encounters a bad snowstorm that he is unable to navigate through due to the faulty windshield wipers and poor weather conditions. As a result, he swerves off the road, crashes the car, and is killed instantly (off-screen).

A year later, Charlie has fallen into depression over his father’s death, to the point of withdrawing from all contact with his friends. One night, he makes another snowman that bears as much of a resemblance to Jack as he can remember and plays Jack’s harmonica just before going to sleep. The harmonica turns out to be magical after all, as it revives Jack, transferring his spirit into the snowman. Jack attempts to greet Charlie, but instead, ends up terrifying him by mistake. The next day, Charlie discovers Jack in his yard and attempts to run away from him, leaving Jack feeling humiliated once more, but still determined to go after his son.
