The upcoming holiday movie follows the classic "big-city girl returns to solve a small-town problem" trope. The official logline, as per Netflix Media Center, reads:

Ahead of the film's release, Britt Robertson shared her thoughts with Tudum:

"My character Ashley has been a successful Broadway dancer for her entire adult career, she returns to her hometown and is faced with figuring out what she wants for her future, while also reinventing her parents’ local business. I love being able to surround myself with friends and family, decorate a Christmas tree, cook fresh baked goods and celebrate our lives together. Being able to bring my favorite people together to watch a holiday movie helps me to appreciate the most important things in life."

Chad Michael Murray added:

"Luke is kind, confident and slightly sarcastic. He works as a contractor helping out the family who owns a bar named the Rhythm Room. He’s thrust into an unfamiliar situation and is pushed to the limits of comfortability. Holiday movies bring so many of us the peace and calm we love to enjoy over the holidays. These films bring us together and give us adventures to enjoy as a family."
