It follows three residents an old man who spends his afternoons reminiscing in the local coffee shop, a depressed high school backup quarterback and a new English teacher at the local high school whose lives, along with those of the town's other residents, are upended by a white-out blizzard.

"Downtown Owl" will be produced by Rabe and Linklater along with Bettina Barrow and Rebecca Green.
