In the lead up to Christmas, Nick Bellwith, a Chicago investment banker, is fired for an investment decision he made for his biggest client, which negated all the money he made for them and his company in the past. Being let go was instead of the promotion to junior partner he was expecting. Nick is hesitant to tell his world-traveling father Sydney Bellwith who seems to value financial success and the big boy toy trappings that go along with it more than anything. Solely seeing Nick walk by seemingly a man at a loss, aging Clem Marshwell, the owner of the Star Top Christmas tree lot, offers Nick a temporary minimum wage job assisting with the heavy lifting at the lot.

Clarke Peters steals the show !
5 December 2019 | by Lew777See all my reviews

I was expecting a typical Hallmark Christmas romance with all about the 2 leads & their stories. However the glue that holds everything together was the natural excellent performance by Clarke Peters as Clem, who owns a Christmas tree-lot. Autumn Reeser adds another classy believable role as a Mum who has crippling bills to pay from her Dad's medical treatments , being badly treated by finance companies who own the debt. Jesse Metcalf does pretty ok too as a recently-fired Investment expert who finds himself again & gets to give back to others at the best time of the year ! Less typical than most Hallmark seasonal films, and all the better for that !
