Every Day is Christmas Plot
An intelligent and ambitious money manager, Alexis Taylor (Toni Braxton) drives herself and her co-workers to work hard…all the time. So much so that she expects them to work on Christmas Day, much to the dismay of her office staff. Taylor is a workaholic who has a dismissive attitude towards things like love and affection and buries herself in the pursuit of money and success.
Then, a miracle happens in the true spirit of Christmas, and Taylor’s life is changed forever. She gets the holiday visit of a lifetime and is forced to confront her past, present, and future as they all impossibly collide.
She has to grapple with matters of the heart, and soon realizes that all the wealth in the world cannot buy one thing: her heart! Life turns upside down for Taylor, even as she is making sense of the miracle all around her on Christmas.
