The holiday family film stars Haylie Duff (“7th Heaven,”“Napoleon Dynamite”) and Antonio Cupo (“Bomb Girls,” “Elegy,” “Love At The Thanksgiving Day Parade”). The cast also includes Sean Michael Kyer (Girl in Progress,” “The Color of Rain”)

Mia (Duff) is a widow with a young son, Scotty (Kyer),Mia has been working at a local hat company for ten years and is a loyal and hard-working manager of the shop. When there are changes in the company, Mia thinks she is due for a promotion into upper management but is blindsidedwhen her boss asks her to train his son, Nick (Cupo) to work for the company. Nick is a handsome man and already successful as a high level consultant in New York City.

Mia is frustrated with having to train Nick for a position that she thinks she deserves. Nick starts to take an interest in Scotty, who is in wheelchair. Mia is grateful when she notes that Nick does not treat Scotty differently due to his disability.

Nick helps Scotty carve a pumpkin for a pumpkin carving contest, but Nick fails to show up for the contest which disappoints Scotty and Mia. To protect her son from further disappointment, Mia tries to keep Nick out of her and Scotty’s fragile life, and Nick must decide if staying in the small town of Wilsonville is worth giving up the big-city perks he once had in New York.

Mia learns that physical therapy may help Scotty to walk again and tried toconvince her son to make the effort. She soon realizes that Nick may be the Christmas miracle she has been waiting for.
