After losing a high-profile legal case, CINDY, an ambitious lawyer, decides to take a much-needed winter vacation back in her snowy hometown. Meanwhile, the town is having a week-long celebration -- “The Yuletide Festival” – with a fair, and most importantly, an annual beauty pageant where the Yuletide Queen is crowned. Having always dreamed of winning but never having the courage to enter, Cindy finally signs herself up.
The only trouble is that Yuletide Queen is usually a 12-year-old girl. But Cindy begs to differ. According to her, nowhere in the town bylaws does it set an age limit for contestants. This is terrible news for newly elected (and single) Councilman AIDEN, who is receiving complaints left and right and can’t convince Cindy to drop out.
Undeterred, Cindy throws herself into the competition, especially the required community service project. But the more Councilman Aiden tries to sabotage Cindy’s chances, the closer they become. And when Aiden finally asks Cindy to drop out of the race, she’s worried it will cost them their new relationship. Is the crown worth it?
THE YULETIDE QUEEN is a charming holiday rom com by Ernie Bustamante, who has sold pilots and movies to ABC, FOX, Freeform, Disney, and Nickelodeon, among others. He is an alumni of the UCB Sketch Program, the ABC/Disney Writing Program, and the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival.
