Christmas Lost and Found Plot
Whitney Kennison (Tiya Sircar) is an ultra-busy event planner in the Big Apple, and she’s missed many family gatherings because she has been so caught up in her work and life.
But this year, she’s decided to make it home for Christmas no matter what, and is going to Chicago to spend the holidays with her grandmother, Frances (Diane Ladd).
Grandma Frances is so excited that her dear granddaughter Whitney will finally spend Christmas with her that she decides to give her the precious and expensive Kennison family Christmas ornaments. Whitney arrives and later throws out the box of ornaments by mistake, totally unaware of their value.
Now Frances must come up with a fun-filled Christmas scavenger hunt, not only to find the ornaments, but more importantly, to get Whitney to understand the real meaning of Christmas. It’s an exciting race against time as Whitney recovers the ornaments and while doing so, finds romance and learns the lessons Frances is so keen to teach her.
Will Whitney understand the value of good relationships, family ties, and the unique spirit of Christmas? Will the always-busy Whitney pause for a while and realize what she really needs in her life? Tune in to find out if grandma Frances is able to pass on her wisdom to her darling granddaughter.
