About The Movie:
In the second movie of this sequel trilogy, Emma (Reeser) is sticking to her five year plan, as Paolo (Bernardini) prepares to open a lace shop in Chicago with his cousin Matteo (Marks). On track to assume a promotion to department chair, Emma feels strongly that things fall into place before she and Paolo can consider growing their family. However, Paolo worries that that day may never come. When a crisis at home calls Paolo back to Italy, the couple must navigate busy schedules to make time for each other from afar. Missing Paolo, Emma bumps heads with Nancy (Lynda Boyd, “Virgin River”), the current chair of her department and begins to question her life choices. Thankfully, she has frequent calls, texts and visits with Tracy (Sweeney) and Avery (Chabert), who seem to know her better than she knows herself. She also has a friend in her smart and quirky teacher’s aide, Lily (Rohl), who provides Emma with a novel opportunity to get people excited about art, but it might mean giving up everything she’s worked for. Meanwhile, Emma cannot help but notice a spark between Lily and Matteo – who both happened to be touching the veil when they met. As Emma tries to get Lily to trust her heart, she must find the courage to stop planning her own dream life and start living it.
