Jamie (Hynes) hasn’t told his family that he and his now ex-girlfriend Emily (Lenz) broke up. After an inopportune run-in with Emily at the train station in his hometown, Jamie convinces her to pretend they’re still a couple to avoid ruining Christmas for his family. Jamie and Emily engage in a week-long ruse of participating in his family’s holiday activities together. While they’re stuck in his family’s home, the pair discovers their relationship might still have some potential, resulting in a very unexpected Christmas.
The all-new original movie is a part of Hallmark Channel’s “Countdown to Christmas” programming event, the destination for holiday entertainment.
“An Unexpected Christmas” is from Unexpected Road Productions Ltd. Charles Cooper serves as Producer. Michael Robison directed from a story by Paul Campbell.
