About The Movie:
Claire (Osnes) is an aspiring talent booker who’s been working at her family’s hotel and casino in Lake Tahoe and is on the brink of landing a prestigious job with a major Las Vegas venue. But when the act she booked for her the hotel on Christmas Eve backs out last minute, she is back to square one. Jackson (Monahan), her best friend and the concierge, reminds Claire that she knows someone famous to turn to – her ex-boyfriend Ryan (Selig), is the lead guitarist for a hugely popular band. Though Claire helped Ryan’s band break out initially, the two haven’t spoken since they cut her loose in favor of a bigger management company. Back home in Tahoe on a break from his tour to spend the holidays in Tahoe with his family, Ryan offers to help her find a replacement act. While Claire tries to prove she has put the past behind her, feelings come back to the surface and they both realize they may need each other more than they remembered.
