Hallmark Hall of Fame movie One Christmas Eve premieres on Sunday, November 30 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The film stars Anne Heche (Men in Trees, Another World) as the beleaguered Nell Blakemore.

Nell's a newly‐single mom who wants this Christmas to be extra‐special for her two kids (played by Once Upon a Time's Ali Skovbye and Contagion's Griffin Kane).

It turns out to be special – but not the way Nell had in mind!

This Christmas Eve, everything that can go wrong does go wrong.

The mayhem starts when Cesar (The Glade's Carlos Gomez) attempts to leave an abandoned beagle on Nell's front porch. Cesar trips and falls. Nell has to take him to the hospital, where Kevin Daniels (Sirens) is a security guard and Brian Tee (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift) a dreamy doc.

In no particular order, their car is towed, Nell's son and the beagle disappear down a hole in a construction zone, a nasty nurse harasses them all. Later – to add insult to injury – they're car‐jacked. And they're all in a police station when it goes up in flames.
