In Paper Angels, abused wife Lynn (Bissett) leaves her alcoholic husband Darryl (Russell Porter), with her two kids, Thomas (Gresiuk) and Sara (Humbeck), and the trio move to another town where she struggles to make ends meet working as a waitress to support the family. In that same town, we meet Kevin (Settle), who is helping his wife Jenny (Kendra Anderson) through a difficult pregnancy with twins, while fighting to keep his marketing & design company afloat. Thomas starts at his new school and becomes the target of a bully, Vic (Duffield), who is threatened by how well Thomas plays basketball.

Unable to join the high school team, Thomas goes to the community center where he meets Kevin and the two of them become unlikely friends through pickup basketball games. Little do they know the tremendous impact they will have on each other's families this Christmas through The Salvation Army's Angel Tree Program.
