Storyline

Single mom Madison finds herself scraping pennies together two weeks before Christmas after the IRS freezes her bank account, her ex fails to come through with any help and her boss fires her. Desperate to pay bills and buy gifts for her teenage children, Madison jumps into the ever-popular "gig economy." That's when she meets and eventually gets hired by obnoxious, sidelined former pro football player Alec Darby, also secretly on the verge of going broke. This odd couple butts heads time and time again, but they eventually forge a friendship. And, to their surprise, they learn a lot about themselves and teach one another how to be better people.

A realistic Christmas Story
31 December 2018 | by tdpowl-20965See all my reviews

The storyline was so real. For example the dialogue between the divorced couple was not exaggerated with anger.

The children were humble and made sacrifices.

I don't want give the entire story away. But yeah, I enjoyed it!
