The holiday season is upon us, and with it comes toothache-inducingly sweet romcoms courtesy of Lifetime. Christmas Unwrapped is the latest offering from the network that usually brings us dark and sinister thrillers. It’s one of the 30 original movies of Lifetime’s “It’s a Wonderful Lifetime” holiday entertainment fest, which began on October 23. The fact that Tiffany Haddish produced the movie is plenty reason to watch. But we’re also giving you the details of the cast and plot of Christmas Unwrapped to kickstart your indoor holiday entertainment.
Plot of Christmas Unwrapped
This fluffy Christmas flick tells the holiday tale of Charity Jones, a reporter with a cynical edge. Like any journalist, she’s on the hunt for a major scoop.
That’s where Erik Gallagher comes in. Erik is the town’s resident handsome millionaire. But he’s no Scrooge. In fact, he’s a Secret Santa to the whole town.
The generous rich dude is the target of Charity’s new story. What happens when Erik proclaims that the real Santa Claus gave those gifts to the town?
For one, Charity probably needs more convincing. And ultimately, she’s going to find a millionaire beau.
