Coins for Christmas is a delightful holiday movie released in 2018. The film stars Essence Atkins as Madison, a struggling single mother who has recently lost her job. Madison has two children, a boy, and a girl, and they all live together in a rundown apartment in Los Angeles. Stephen Bishop plays Alec Darby, Madison's neighbor, who is a wealthy banker. He drives a fancy car and lives in a grand house, but he's not happy with his life. Alec is a workaholic who has difficulty connecting with people, and while he's successful on the outside, he's lonely on the inside.

When Madison's landlord threatens to evict her and her children because she's behind on her rent, Madison is desperate for a way to make money. She hears about a job from a friend that pays $10,000, but there's a catch - she must take care of Alec's 12-year-old daughter, Jax, for two weeks while he goes on a business trip to Hong Kong.

Madison doesn't know anything about taking care of children, but she's determined to do her best to earn the money she needs. She agrees to take the job and meets Jax, played by Tyla Harris, a smart and spunky girl who has just moved to Los Angeles from New York.

As Madison and Jax get to know each other, they find they have a lot in common – both are struggling to fit in and find their place in the world. Madison shares her dreams of becoming a baker, while Jax talks about her love of science and engineering. They bond over their shared interests and experiences.

Meanwhile, Alec is in Hong Kong dealing with a difficult client, but he finds himself constantly thinking about Madison and Jax. He begins to see that there is more to life than work and money and realizes that he wants to spend more time with his daughter.

When Alec returns home, he is amazed at the transformation in Jax and grateful for the care Madison has given her. He also sees how hard Madison has been working and offers her a job as his personal assistant. Madison is thrilled at the opportunity, but she's torn because she wants to pursue her dreams of becoming a baker.

Throughout the movie, Madison and Alec are drawn to each other, but there are obstacles in their way. They come from different worlds, and Alec has a girlfriend that he's been with for a long time. Despite these challenges, they both begin to realize that they have feelings for each other.
