The film stars Sarah Carter (Falling Skies), Damon Runyan (The Husband She Met Online) and Paul Popowich (Hemlock Grove).

Aspiring astronomy professor - and Christmas enthusiast - Holly (Carter) is crushed when her longtime boyfriend Adam (Popowich) schedules a business trip and leaves her alone over the holidays. When she decides to surprise both Adam and her parents with a Christmas visit, however, fate - or perhaps the Christmas spirit - intervenes.

Holly's bumpy holiday travel makes a turn onto the road to romance when she and her bus companion, Luke Shelton (Runyan), forge an instant connection over their love of constellations and Christmas. In the spirit of the season, Holly invites Luke and his brother Bull (Canyon) to join her family and Adam for Christmas, which instantly creates a competition between Luke and Adam for Holly's attention. As sparks fly like shooting stars between Holly and Luke, Holly must decide whether to play it safe and stay with Adam, or to thank her lucky stars for the Christmas gift of romance with Luke.
