It begins with a visit to a neighborhood pawn shop. Then, with the help of her best friend, Renee, cash-strapped Della takes on an extra job at a hotel without Jim’s knowing. Jim, a bartender in O. Henry’s Pub, secretly finds extra work, too, through his best friend, Ian. All it’ll take is just a couple of noble white lies from each of them, and enduring a few weeks of exhausting moonlighting, to make Christmas special. And in the meantime, they play matchmaker for Renee and Ian. It’ll be perfect. But a series of misunderstandings soon undermine their respective schemes, and fate itself will have a hand in their design for the best Christmas ever.
