About The Movie:
When Jessica (DeVitto) is dumped by her boyfriend right before Christmas, she sends the five cards meant for him to five people who changed her life and somehow sets off a chain reaction of love. Aunt Lila (Davidovich), who raised Jessica, drops her card at the mailbox and Tom (Show), her neighbor, picks it up, sparking a romance. The card Jessica sends to her brother in the army motivates him to take a chance at romance, while Jessica’s friend, who’s been encouraging her to try out for the symphony, finds inspiration from her card to make an important life decision.
Jessica’s card to Jax (Seeley), a washed-up boy band star, tells him his music got her through her parents’ death and Jax’s musical inspiration is rekindled. The fifth goes to Jessica’s music teacher who inspired her to play cello. Out of the country, she has her son Luke (Murray) read her mail and he is so moved by Jessica’s card, she tells Luke to give Jessica her vintage cello. As it turns out, Luke’s as gun-shy about dating as Jessica, but after a six-hour first date that includes playing Mr. and Mrs. Kringle at a group home, their attraction is sealed. But just when it seems love has won, misunderstandings occur, and Fate must step in once again.
