Veterinarian and part-time mayor Sarah heads a town council desperate to find a doctor to keep open the small town's clinic. They fear, rightly, that family after family will move away and the town will disappear. Their hopes are raised when Bob announces his widower son Michael the surgeon and grand daughter are going to visit for the first time in years for the Xmas holiday. The mayor's attempt to recruit Michael is complicated by their history (their high school romance) and his secret shame (that he has lost his confidence in his surgical skills to the point that his big city hospital is kicking him upstairs to an administrative position).

I liked this movie a lot for its old-fashioned romance and watching Mike come to realize just how important home and family are to the soul of man.
Gee willikers! It's just a movie. I hear plenty of people criticize every movie or TV show because "that's not how real cops would do it" or "that's not how real doctors would do it." Do we criticize a movie about time travel because that's not how it's done in real life? The magic of movies can only work when we're willing to suspend our disbelief and let the movie create its own reality.
So rather than negatively comparing movies to real life, I think we should just enjoy the film for what it is. And this one has a real sweetness to it.
