The World Christmas Market has been in JOY BAXTER’s town for over 40 years. But the market’s age is beginning to show and attendance has slumped. When Joy learns that the market’s lease is up for renewal, she pitches her ideas for its redevelopment directly to an old college acquaintance, BRAD THOMAS, whose family owns the land the market sits on. Brad insists that Joy’s boss, MR. WOOD promote her to the development team and they get started immediately. Afraid of a public relations nightmare, Mr. Wood demands that Joy get the market’s tenants and their fiercely devoted leader, SAM GIBSON, to move peacefully or she will lose her job.
After Sam innocently mistakes her for a prospective market vendor and Joy’s artist brother, NOEL, stumbles across the application and thinks it’s for him, Joy sees going undercover in the market as a chance to both temporarily help her brother and convince Sam that moving to another location is in everyone’s best interests. The market seems destined to shut down on its own until Joy’s Christmas-obsessed parents make it their mission to save the market with their over the top “20 Days of Christmas” campaign.
With every moment Joy spends in the market, she slowly rediscovers the true magic of Christmas. Will she choose the market and Sam, the man who appears so different from her, but touches her heart? Or will she go forward with the redevelopment and Brad, the things her brain is convinced she should want?
