Disillusioned Liza McCann and her son travel to Hollyville to visit her estranged father. The town's profuse decorations and intense Yuletide spirit exasperate Liza, who has hated the holidays ever since she was a little girl. But a series of magic and inexplicable events force Liza to rethink everything she thought was true. Will the magic of this Christmas town help Liza reconnect with her father and open her heart to the true spirit of the holidays?
This is a wonderful story about a reconnection to not only the spirit of Christmas but also to family. As Liza is a workaholic and is not really connected to the wants and needs of her only son or her father, a holiday vacation to Hollyville will help her make the change. It is a delightful story filled with humor and charm. This truly is a film that can be enjoyed by the entire family.
We award this film the Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for all ages.
