An Unexpected Christmas is a heartwarming holiday romance movie from 2021 starring Tyler Hynes, Bethany Joy Lenz, and Alison Wandzura. The movie is directed by Paul Ziller and written by Richard Clark Jr. The story follows the life of a charming workaholic, Nathan (Tyler Hynes), who has never taken the time to celebrate Christmas or any other holiday with his family. He is a successful businessman who is more interested in his career than love or family life. Nathan's boss assigns him to travel to a small town in Colorado to close a factory that is about to go bankrupt.

On reaching the town, Nathan gets trapped in a snowstorm and seeks refuge in a local inn. He meets Samantha (Bethany Joy Lenz), the owner of the inn, and her family, who take him in and show him the true meaning of Christmas. Samantha is a single mother who is struggling to make ends meet after the demise of her husband. Despite her struggles, she is determined to provide her children with the best Christmas ever.

Nathan's character transforms as he experiences the warmth and love of Samantha's family, and he begins to question his own priorities.

As Nathan's affection for Samantha grows, he begins to realize that a life centered on work cannot bring him true happiness. He discovers the importance of family, love and kindness, and decides to help Samantha save her inn. Together with her family, Nathan puts his business skills to work and discovers a new sense of purpose and fulfilment.
