About The Movie:
Novelist Katie (Lawson) meets Ben (Greene) on the train to picturesque Evergreen, where her planned holiday retreat is interrupted by an assignment to write an article about the town. Though Katie is initially a bit of a skeptic about the town’s genuine love of Christmas, she finds herself quickly enchanted by both Evergreen and Ben after spending time with him and Evergreen residents Michelle (Peete), Hannah (Bernard), Carol (Niven), Lisa (Wagner) and – for a short time – Allie (Williams).
Katie and Ben grow closer while enjoying Evergreen’s Christmas traditions, and even help unearth a long-lost time capsule hidden 50 years ago. Meanwhile, Hannah struggles to confess her true feelings for a long-time friend, and Michelle finds herself happier than ever in her own relationship. As Christmas approaches and Katie’s trip nears an end, Katie, Ben, Michelle and Hannah all wonder if Evergreen’s holiday magic has something special in store for them.
