Christmas At Water's Edge is a heartwarming holiday movie that premiered in 2004. Starring Keshia Knight Pulliam, Pooch Hall, and Earl Billings, the plot is centered around two families who come together to spend Christmas in a house by the lake. The story begins with the Hartman family, who are struggling to put their lives back together after the tragic loss of their daughter. David Hartman (played by Pooch Hall) is still grieving the loss of his daughter, and his wife (played by Tamara Taylor) is struggling to keep their family together. David's mother, Rose (played by Lynn Whitfield), encourages the family to spend Christmas at her friend's house by the lake.

On the other side of the story, we have the Simpson family, who has been happily living in the lake house for many years. However, due to financial difficulties, they have decided to sell the house. Jim Simpson (played by Earl Billings) is having difficulties coming to terms with selling the house due to all the memories it holds.

The two families end up meeting each other, and they decide to spend Christmas together. At first, the families are hesitant around each other, but over time, they form a bond and start to learn about each other's pasts, secrets, and joys.

Keshia Knight Pulliam plays Heather, Jim's granddaughter. She is a self-assured college student who has grown up spending her Christmases at the lake house. She is the one who brings both families together, and her positive attitude and enthusiasm help them form strong bonds.

As the families start to open up to each other, they learn valuable life lessons, including the importance of forgiveness, family, and love. They discover that even though they come from different walks of life, they have more in common than they thought.

The movie is full of heartwarming moments, including a beautiful scene where both families come together to decorate the Christmas tree. The music in the movie is also one of its highlights, as it includes classic Christmas carols like 'Silent Night' and 'Joy to the World.'

Throughout the movie, the two families work through their differences and come to understand that despite their separate journeys, they share a common goal: to find happiness and fulfillment in life. The movie beautifully portrays the importance of family, forgiveness and acceptance.

Overall, Christmas At Water's Edge is a gentle, uplifting film that captures the essence of the holiday season – love, compassion, and togetherness. It's the perfect movie to curl up with on a cold winter night, enjoying hot chocolate and reflecting on the true meaning of Christmas.
