About The Movie:
Danielle (Cahill) was left to raise her daughter Audrey (Alice Comer, “Open by Christmas”) when her husband, Colby (Weber), goes MIA and is presumed dead during a military deployment overseas. Three years later, she has made great progress with moving on and has recently become engaged to an old friend, Pierce Baker (Lund). Audrey begins to ask questions about her dad when she learns of an upcoming father-daughter dance at school and she is feeling out of place. Danielle begins to tell Audrey bedtime stories of her father, which becomes a ritual; Audrey is rapt each night and through her mother’s memories is able to envision her father as a flesh-and-blood hero. As Danielle tells Audrey these stories, she starts to see signs that leave her feeling unsettled about Colby. On Christmas Eve, Danielle and Audrey go to the dance together, all while Danielle continues to question why her love for Pierce doesn’t feel the same as her love for Colby – if only there was a sign.
