Every tree tells a story....but will it be interesting?
Every tree has a story to tell? In this case, Molly Logan and her childhood boyfriend Lucas Bishop come across our subject tree while exploring her family's Vermont Christmas tree farm. The tree is sick and Molly's dad wants to chop it down. Molly bonds to the tree and brings it back to life through her music. After an abrupt and unexplained fast-forward to Molly's adult life, the tree shows up at her posh New York office as a delivery for her boss. Molly immediately recognizes the tree as her long-lost friend and feels compelled to return it back to their home in Vermont so they can share Christmas together. What are the chances of this happening outside of a made-for-TV Christmas movie?
Back in Vermont, Molly discovers the family farm is in foreclosure and Lucas now works for the developer trying to turn it into a "green" golf course. Horrified, Molly gets to work saving the family farm. While the Christmas tree watches all this happen from the homestead living room, Molly's deep-pocket,recently-widowed boss Walter shows up because his kids want to spend Christmas with Molly. A hint of a rivalry for Molly's love ensues between Logan and Walter. Who will win Molly's heart? Will the family keep the farm? Does the tree end up saving Christmas? You can probably guess where this tree's story is going from here.
Un- or underdeveloped characters, mediocre acting and numerous loose ends in the story line turns this tree's saga into something that becomes easily forgettable. Every tree may have a story, but not all of them will be interesting or even well told.
