Hailee Anderson (McCord), a well-known entertainment reporter for a network morning show, is humiliated when her oft-absent investment banker fiancé, Jason (Scott) is revealed to be linked to a Beverly Hills socialite coming her way to the Big Apple. Hailee takes off in her car to find peace, abandoning a Christmas special she is due to host for her producer, Monica (Gibson). After running over a small town judge's Christmas display, she instead finds herself stuck in the town of Carver Bend with a $100 fine and sentenced to 25 hours of community service.
While there, she's befriended by Beck Thomas (Brown), a budding artist. He asks for her help to save the local community art center he runs for the town's kids, by helping them build their float for the annual Christmas Parade - the winner will receive enough money to save the center from a pending sale. Short on Christmas spirit, due to an experience in her past, Hailee has to find a way to inspire both the kids and Beck – as well as herself – to bring back the spirit of what Christmas is all about, love.
