After wrapping up shooting on her latest project, "Jenny's Wedding," in which she plays a lesbian wanting to get married to her girlfriend, played by Alexis Bledel, Heigl took off for snowy Utah to play a single mother struggling to maintain custody of her daughter.
Barnes plays a train-hopping musician who helps Heigl's character overcome her obstacles.
She took to Twitter on Feb. 7 to tell a fan she was in the state despite the rough weather.
That's the plan! RT @NJMURRAY33: with all the bad weather forecast for Utah this week coming will you still be filming in the state?— Katherine Heigl (@KatieHeigl) February 7, 2014
She told fans she was wrapping up filming on "Your Right Mind" on Saturday.

Clea DuVall, Sheryl Lee, Emily Alyn Lind and musician-actor Ryan Bingham are also in the film. Ami Canaan Mann is the writer and director.
