Gabriel “Gabby” Messinger (Rachel Boston) is a Guardian Angel who can’t seem to stop playing matchmaker. After meddling in another couple’s lives, the Angel Michael D’Angelo (Beau Bridges) reminds Gabby about the rules: they are there to offer guidance and not impeded on “free will.” But love is a wonderful thing and Gabby just wants people who love each other to be together. Also, she wonders what it would be like to be in love and have someone care about her in that way. But rules are rules. Michael assigns her to the town of Angel Falls. Though brightly decorated with glittering lights and colors, the town has lost its Christmas spirit and it’s Gabby’s job to bring it back.
Gabby applies for a holiday volunteer coordinator position at the local church. As she explores the town and gets to know more about the local residents, she strikes up an unexpected friendship with Jack Avery (Paul Greene), who also happens to own the local hardware store. Gabby begins to realize there is more than meets the eye in Angel Falls and she’ll have to work on individual festive spirit, including Jack’s, as well as the town’s festive spirit.
With the help of a local teen, Gabby launches a website highlighting the heydays of Christmas in Angel Falls that brings back fond memories for the townspeople and gets them back in the Christmas spirit. She also enlists Jack’s help on repairs needed to get the community center up and running in time for the big day. As they work together, Gabby begins to have feelings for Jack that she’s never felt before, prompting her to question her special assignment.
Though happy that the town has found its Christmas spirit once again and excited to see the townspeople come together like they did years ago, Gabby struggles with having to leave Angel Falls. As her time there comes to an end, she has a heart-to-heart with Michael that leads to a surprising decision about her future.
