The story takes place in Bunyan Bay, Minnesota, in a little bar called "The Bunyan," owned by Clara and Gunner Johnson. Clara is 8 1/2 months pregnant with their first child, and today she's looking forward to her baby shower and getting lots of presents. Bernice Lundstrom arrives for the shower, following her successful singing engagement at the Corn Palace. She is asked to finally decide who she will marry. Will it be Kanute Gunderson, the successful owner of six hunting, fishing and canoeing stores or Aarvid Gisselsen, a down-on-his-luck karaoke salesman?
Suddenly, a freak snow storm, a "tsnownami," hits Bunyan Bay and they find themselves snowed in. All roads are closed. No one can get in or leave. Gunner's worst nightmare comes true when Clara goes into labor and he realizes he's going to have to deliver the baby in the bar.
