The synopsis reads:
Holly Khun (D’Orsay), known to Chicago as “Miss Christmas,” always finds the most magnificent tree for the plaza, but this year’s 95-foot spruce has been damaged and the lighting ceremony is 10 days away. Hoping for a miracle, Holly combs through photos and finds that Joey (Luke Roessler, “Legion,” “Once Upon a Time”) from Klaus, Wisconsin, has the perfect tree – if only the boy’s letter had a return address. Off Holly goes to Klaus, where she stays at a bed & breakfast run by Joey’s aunt, who takes her to the farm to meet Joey’s father Sam McNary (Blucas). Although he and Holly are attracted to one another, Sam isn’t filled with her holiday spirit. His mother passed away the year before and he feels the tree, with his parents’ initials carved into the trunk, should stay on the farm. Sam’s father says Holly should present her case to the family for a vote but time is running out. Holly’s boss says not to bother coming back if she can’t produce the tree in three days. But as Holly gets to know the McNarys, she isn’t convinced the tree should go. She’s also not sure she wants to go back to Chicago. She came looking for the perfect tree, but might have found the perfect man and an idyllic new place to call home.
