Synopsis: A Wish For Christmas on the Hallmark Channel
Sara Shaw is a hard-worker, but she is too meek and too kind. A people-pleaser for most of her life, Sara Shaw draws the line after her boss, Dirk Tyson, steals her idea for an upcoming Christmas initiative. Broken-hearted, Sara decides that she wants to start standing up for herself so that she can get credit where credit is due. The mild-mannered worker gets her chance after she speaks with Santa, who offers her the chance to make one important wish.
She already knows what her one wish will be, which is to be granted the courage to tell Peter, the owner of the company, that her idea was stolen by her boss, Dirk.
Meanwhile, Sara gets the chance to visit Peter’s hometown, which is located near the White Ridge Ski Resort. During the trip, Sara and Peter are drawn closer together as they enjoy the spirit of Christmas.
At the same time, Santa believes that Sara’s wish to be brave is a tall order and suggests that granting her a million dollars or a bag of gold might be easier.
But Sara lets Santa know that she is tired of being a pushover and desperately needs the gift of expressing her strong opinions to others. To grant her wish, Santa must first consult with his elves back at the North Pole. If Sara’s magical wish is indeed granted, she’ll only have 48 hours to speak her mind. Can Sara pull it off and will she still have a job after?
