Young man is held against his will and abused by a mentally ill man who has a daughter with learning disabilities in a remote snow-fallen area.

It's a US film, I think from the 70s.

I think the protagonist is a sales man; he stops his car for help because of a blizzard, although he might have crashed it.

The antagonist at first appears nice then beats the younger man and uses him as a slave.

The young man and the daughter form something of a bond.

The daughter throws herself in front of a train at the end of the film out of fear of the 'outside world'.

I thought the title has the word 'bitter' or 'winter' in it.
