About The Movie:
Jessica Tucker (Bell), a widow and successful doctor, is trying to juggle work and family when she learns she’s up for the top job at the hospital. It’s a great career move but means even more time away from her daughter Ava (Samantha MacGillivray) and would derail her plans to open a private practice that offers more work-life balance. Jessica books a stay at a resort in Fiji with cute bungalows, horseback riding on the beach so she and Ava can disconnect and have some mother-daughter bonding time. Complicating matters is fellow resort guest Trevor (Paul O’Brien, “Neighbours”), a dashing surgeon who takes an immediate interest in Jessica. During her stay, she also strikes up a friendship with Will (Mathison), the charming owner of the resort. As Jessica and Will spend more time together, she begins to relax and starts to wonder if this island paradise can give her the life – and love – she’s always hoped for.
