Neal + Sara + The Raphael
Emotionally scarred by a failed marriage, Katherine (Hilarie Burton) has plunged into her successful career as a NYC marketing executive, but her workaholic ways are taking a toll on her 8 year old son, Zack (Brody Rose). Concerned over Zack’s increasing disaffection, Katherine decides they will spend Christmas in her home town in Louisiana’s bayou country, where her mother, Lilly (Markie Post), is soon match-making with a vengeance. When Caleb (Tyler Hilton), Katherine’s old admirer, tries to rekindle a childhood romance and convince her to move home, Katherine is torn between the bright lights of the big city and the quiet, gentler rhythms of her Southern roots. But a small Christmas miracle, orchestrated by the mysterious Papa Noel (Ed Asner), convinces Katherine that her heart belongs back in the bayou where she was raised.
