About The Movie:
Struggling artist Kelly Riley (McKellar) returns to her Wyoming hometown for the Christmas holiday – to the delight of her doting dad (Lauria) – where she becomes involved in an effort to save the town’s beloved lodge from the wrecking ball. In the process, she finds herself falling for the handsome widower (Elliott) sent to Grand Valley by his company to decide the fate of the lodge. Unless they can come up with a workable plan to keep it running, the lodge, and the potential romance that is brewing between them, are doomed.
