Nativity, Missouri, is in trouble.
When the small town is bypassed by the newly constructed highway, it loses its much-needed holiday traffic threatening not only the towns financial survival, but its very heart and soul.
Outside consultant Jake Brisco threatens everything the community loves about Christmas with his budget-slashing solutions. Nothing is sacred not even the traditional town Christmas tree. Long-time resident Roni Elliot knows some sacrifices have to be made, but cant let go of the customs and traditions that have marked her holidays since childhood. The decorations and customary activities have always generated vitality and joy throughout the whole season in Nativity.
Though their priorities and methods clash, Roni and Jake want the same thing prosperity for the town. As the two get to know each other and become close, each begins to gain a new perspective on what the real wealth of Nativity and the season might be.
