About The Movie:
“There’s a place called Pine River, high up in the mountains, where Christmas is celebrated with an incredible tradition. Every holiday season, the Angel Tree appears overnight in the town square. And then…the magic begins. People write down their wishes and hang them on the tree, and a mysterious benefactor, known only as ‘Angel,’ helps make those wishes come true.” Thus, begins the story of the Angel Tree. Rebecca (Wagner), a magazine writer who spent her childhood in Pine River, is sent on assignment to uncover Angel’s true identity. Privately, she also wants to know why her long ago wish to stay in town was not fulfilled. While researching for her story, Rebecca reconnects with her old friend Matthew (Bryant). While he is happy to see her, Matthew feels strongly that Angel’s secret should be kept, and he does his best to keep her from finding out the truth. As Rebecca gets closer to unmasking Angel, she rediscovers a belief in the power of community, her desire for home and especially, the magic of the Angel Tree.
