About The Movie:
In “Love Takes Flight,” divorced, single mom Lizzie Beauman (DeLoach) is an expert at juggling the demands of her busy life. Between raising her five-year-old daughter Quinn and her job as administrator of the town’s hospital, Lizzie’s working at max capacity. But Lizzie has one rule, the hospital never comes home with her. One day, when she’s picking up Quinn at day-care, she notices Quinn has made a book out of construction paper, MISSION: FIND A FRIEND. Like any mother, Lizzie doesn’t like the thought her daughter is struggling to find friends, so when Quinn unexpectedly befriends a wistful widower named Walter in a grocery store, Lizzie chalks it up to Quinn’s new friend mission.
Lizzie’s boundaries between her work and home life begin to crumble when she discovers Charley Andrews (Hephner), the brash EMS pilot’s she just hired at her hospital, is Walter’s son! As pressure piles on Lizzie, both personally and professionally, she will have to make a choice, maintain her cherished boundaries between work and home, which have served her in the past, or open her heart to Charley to embrace the great unknown.
