Smart, stylish Marci Jewel (Malinda Williams) is the owner of an up-and-coming ad agency and thrilled with her single life in New York -- except during the holidays. While all of her cousins are married and having babies, Marci remains the lone holdout in the large Chandler family clan.
As the family's epic Christmas celebration is about to start, Marci promises to come home for the holidays for the first time in years. With a deadline looming for a new client, she drags her employee Adam (Brad James) in tow to Atlanta and does the only thing she can in the face of unbearable pressure from her ailing mom Stephanie (Victoria Rowell) and the rest of her family: fakes a fiance.
While caught up in the family's frenetic holiday drama, Marci learns some unexpected lessons about love, trust and family, particularly when it comes to her new faux fiance Adam and old beau Blair (Karon Riley).
