Cast & Crew
Christmas is Heather Nash's least favorite time of year. As the Manager of the upscale Shops at Town Center, she has to be the annual Christmas Grinch and cancel the leases of under-performing stores by the end of the year. One afternoon, her 8-year-old niece Molly, asks the mall Santa to help find a boyfriend for her beloved aunt. Unbeknownst to Molly, and Heather, the mall Santa is just a substitute filling in and is actually Ryan McKee, a lawyer-turned-artist who is decorating the mall for Christmas and trying to find his way after quitting his job and losing his fiancée. As Heather and Ryan begin to fall for each other, they each don't realize the other's true identity: Heather who is tasked with closing a failing toy store run by Ryan's Aunt Patty and Ryan who is too ashamed to tell Heather that he is the acting mall Santa. Will Molly's Christmas wish come true, or will Heather be stuck with another year alone as the Town Center Grinch?
