A Twist of Christmas Plot
Christmas is coming, and everybody is rushing about, buying presents for their families and loved ones. In the midst of all this chaos, two single parents, a busy working mother, Abby Hewitt (Vanessa Lachey), and a busy lawyer with more cases than he can handle, Ryan Cooper (Brendon Zub), do the unthinkable: they mix up their kids’ toys by mistake at a crowded department store!
Could a parent do anything worse before Christmas? Thanks to their mistake, it looks like Christmas is ruined for both of them and their kids. There is only one way out: they have to help each other salvage their plans for Christmas. There’s only one small problem, too. They can’t stand each other for a minute!
They start working together to make Christmas work out for their kids and don’t even realize that they’re slowly but steadily falling in love with each other! Will this Christmas change their lives for the better, forever?
