The outdoors

This is not a fixed location but it is where most of the story, before the sinking of the ship, takes place. It is the wilderness, where the people are forced when they have nowhere to stay, or are looking for somewhere to stay. It is where everyone is at their most vulnerable, to freezing, starvation, attacks from the enemy, and - in one tragic scene - of falling through the ice of a frozen lake in the middle of an attempted escape.

The abandoned barn

This is where most of the characters meet for the first time, and come to form the group they eventually become. The conflict in personalities, and the mutual distrust, is palpable in this confined space, but it is also where the walls of distrust are broken down and they are compelled to form an alliance in order to survive.
