After her TV show is canceled, Meredith Wright is desperately trying to maintain the momentum--without much success. When her director boyfriend replaces her in their off-off-Broadway project, she plots to give herself a PR bump by accepting a little girl's offer to save her hometown theater by acting in its annual Christmas show. Meredith arrives in Wilson Falls expecting bright lights and big press, but her disappointment fades as she falls in love all over again with acting, Christmas, and her hometown--not to mention the theater's handsome founder, Jordan Hull, and his daughter, Natalie. All seems lost when Jordan learns of Meredith's motives and a leaky roof gives way the night before opening, but a committed Meredith finds a way to let the show go on, giving her a chance to reconnect with her past and start a future with Jordan.
