About The Movie:
Lauren (Reeser) is an established creator and ambassador of her wellness brand called The 27-Hour Day. Her mission is to give the best tips and tricks to make life’s daily chores and activities more efficient. But when an important meeting with her business idol goes awry, Lauren realizes she may need to step away to get some perspective. Foreign to the concept of taking a break, Lauren agrees to go to a mountain retreat. Upon arrival, she hands over all forms of electronics and tries to forget about work. While there, she meets others – Heather (Lillian Doucet-Roche, “A Cinderella Story: Starstruck”), a tireless wedding planner, a couple trying to rekindle their marriage, and Roger (Tom Pickett, “Christmas in Evergreen: Bells are Ringing,” “The Angel Tree”), a bored retiree. Lauren also comes across retreat owner Jack (Walker) who can immediately tell she’s a workaholic from a big city. Jack is looking to expand his family business, not get involved with a guest, but there’s just something about Lauren. Over the course of the week in the calm setting of the Montana mountains, Lauren realizes she needs to reprioritize what’s important in her life as she finds herself beginning to fall for Jack – and wonders how life will be once she returns to New York and if Jack will follow.
