About The Movie:
Angie (Fonseca) is a successful surgeon in New York City but finds herself wondering what her life would be like if she had married her former boyfriend Tyler (Eric Freeman, “Katy Keene”), who is now a successful sportscaster. She takes the train home after work one night but instead of arriving at her apartment in Yonkers, she somehow finds herself transported to her hometown in Connecticut 10 years in the past. At first, she’s naturally disoriented by her unexpected time travel but slowly acclimates. With the advice of the train’s enigmatic conductor (Lloyd), Angie navigates her visit to this Christmas past. As she works to figure out how to get back to the future, Angie has the chance to reconnect with her family and longtime friend Ben (Massey); she even teams up with her sister Kristen (Paige Herschell, “American Housewife”) to help her parents, Evelyn (Thompson) and Marty (Matt Walton, “Tell Me a Story”), rekindle their romance. Along the way, Angie gains a new perspective and discovers what – and who – is truly important to her.
