TWO PEOPLE ARE ABOUT TO DISCOVER WHAT THEY REALLY NEED MOST: EACH OTHER.
Top singer and actress OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN (Grease, Xanadu) and GREGORY HARRISON (Robin Cook's 'Mortal Fear', Trapper John, M.D.) play a couple who strike up the unlikeliest of romances in this charming and heart-warming tale.
Julia Stonecypher (Newton-John) has recently lost both her husband and her job. She s a popular resident of a small country community, but the coming Christmas holidays already look pretty bleak for Julia and her two daughters. But then things begin to get worse! Brian Harding (Harrison), the vice-president of the local bank, turns up in a snowstorm to inform Julia that her house is being repossessed and that she and her daughters will be homeless.
A car accident and the inclement weather, however, conspire to keep Brian in the Stonecyphers lives for considerably longer than he would like! Fuelled by their enforced close proximity in the isolated house and the atmosphere of Christmas, an unlikely romance develops between Julia and Brian. But as the snowstorm passes and Brian is free to leave, will this new-found love continue into the New Year... and beyond?
Julia's daughters are played by STEPHANIE SAWYER (who played Willa in the adventure movie The River Wild) and CHLOE LATTANZI (Olivia Newton-John s real-life daughter with her former husband, actor Matt Lattanzi). A CHRISTMAS ROMANCE is based on the novel of the same name by MAGGIE DAVIS, with a teleplay by DARRAH CLOUD (O, Pioneers, A Holiday Romance). The director is SHELDON LARRY (At the End of the Day: The Sue Rodriguez Story).
