Kristy Swanson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) plays the lead, Erica Miller, who is struggling to keep a positive attitude as she watches her children miss their old school and friends.

Upon arrival in town, Erica is taken aback by the warmth of the locals who welcome her and her children with open arms. With Christmas approaching, the town is preparing for its annual Christmas festival, but the event's organizer and mayor, Edward Herrmann (Gilmore Girls), is feeling the strain due to a lack of funds.
