Here’s the synopsis for the movie from Hallmark: “A confirmed bachelor’s life is turned upside down when he takes in his young niece and nephew a week before Christmas, his absolutely least favorite time of year. As he struggles to ‘make Christmas’ for the kids, with a little help from his lovely next door neighbor, he learns some valuable lessons about the value of family, love, and the joy of Christmas, as seen through the eyes of children.” The movie was filmed in Ontario and Toronto, Canada.
