A Dad For Christmas is a heartwarming and family-friendly made-for-TV movie released in 2006. The movie revolves around the story of a teenage boy named John (played by Kristopher Turner), who is living with his mother since his father left them on Christmas day. After several years, John still misses his father, especially during the holiday season.

The story takes a new turn when John discovers that his father (played by Jack Shepherd) has returned to town with a new family, including a wife and a young daughter. John's mother (played by Louise Fletcher) is surprised to hear the news, and John is filled with a mixture of joy and anger. He wants to meet his father and confront him about abandoning his family on Christmas day.

John's father, Tom, is a successful entrepreneur who has built a new life for himself after leaving his wife and son behind. Tom is hesitant to reconnect with his son after all these years, but he feels guilty about what he did, and he agrees to meet with John.

As Tom and John spend time together, Tom begins to realize the importance of spending time with his son and tries to make amends for his past mistakes. However, John is still angry and refuses to forgive his father. He is also uncomfortable with the new family that Tom has built, including his stepmother and stepsister.

The movie is filled with heartwarming moments as Tom tries to reconnect with his son and build a relationship with him. There are also several comedic moments, especially when John's stepsister gets involved in their family drama.

While Tom and John try to reconnect, John's mother is dealing with her own personal issues. She is trying to deal with the fact that her ex-husband has moved on and built a new life for himself. She is also trying to move on and start dating again, but she is hesitant to let anyone into her life.
