This is one of the best Christmas movies I've ever seen.
My husband and I watched this movie this morning and really loved it. I strongly recommend this movie for all age groups, great movie to enjoy with the family or all by yourself. Love the storyline and just another way of showing what's meant to be will always find a way. The actors do a wonderful job of making you believe in this story. I love the way the story is written and I firmly believe in destiny and fate. The storyline of this movie starts with the lead female character played by Amy Amacker, Crystal Carruthers, who can't seem to figure out anything that she wants to do with her life but shop and take things for granted but when she meets the lead character played by David Haydn-Jones, Derek Gowen, she gets a whole new outlook on life and what she wants. Crystal is shopping one day and finds a letter that has been blown into her path by the wind. The letter is addressed to Santa and is written by Derek's daughter Olivia played by Emma Duke. After reading the letter Crystal decides to find out more about the little girl that wrote the letter and her father because she believes in fate and destiny. This movie is written by Barbara Kymlicka and directed by Jason Priestly, awesome movie, it's definitely a must see.
