In Chandler Christmas Getaway, we follow the story of a recently-divorced workaholic named Tracey Chandler (played by David Alexander) who spends Christmas alone in her high-rise apartment in Atlanta. She's content with her solitary Christmas plans until her boss schedules a last-minute project that requires her to work on Christmas Day. Frustrated and feeling like she has no choice, Tracey accepts the assignment and resigns to spend yet another Christmas alone in her apartment.
However, everything changes when her neighbor, the charming and handsome Donovan (played by Karon Riley), invites her to spend Christmas with his family in the small town of Wilsonville. Initially hesitant, Tracey finally decides to take him up on the offer and embarks on a journey to the countryside, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Donovan warns her that his family is a bit unconventional and she's not sure what to expect but decides to give it a chance.
Tracey is greeted with warmth and hospitality upon her arrival in Wilsonville. Donovan's family feels like home to her and she is grateful for their company on such a lonely day. However, things take a turn when Donovan's ex-girlfriend shows up, causing tension between the two. Along with that, Tracey finds herself in the midst of a family feud between Donovan's parents and his uncle, which eventually leads to a heated argument during Christmas dinner. Feeling like she's causing tension within the family, Tracey decides it's best for her to leave and make her way back to Atlanta.
On the way back, however, Tracey's car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, and she's rescued by a group of strangers who take her in for the night. Unbeknownst to her, these strangers turn out to be the same family members who were feuding earlier, and Tracey finds herself in an unexpected situation. With no other options, she decides to make the best of it and spends the night with them. The family puts their feud aside and welcomes Tracey with open arms, realizing that their love for each other was more important than any argument they had.
The next day, Tracey fixes her car and sets out to return home. She receives a call from Donovan, who apologizes for his behavior and confesses his feelings for her. Tracey admits that she feels the same way and they agree to meet back in Atlanta. Upon returning to the city, Tracey finds that Donovan has left her a surprise gift at her doorstep, proving to her just how much he cares for her.
