Last Chance For Christmas movie synopsis

This world premiere movie is set around Miller Reindeer Ranch, where Prancer is in need of some hoof repair. When Santa’s stable hand, John Stockman, informs him that there is a crack in Prancer’s hoof, Santa is immediately alarmed since that means that he won’t be able to fly. Not delivering the toys in time for Christmas is not an option, so Santa insists that John find a replacement. Things are looking up for John when he comes across Frankie, a beautiful reindeer that belongs to a charming 8-year-old girl. Now, John just has to convince the little girl’s mother, Annie, to allow him to use Frankie as a sub. Convincing Annie to allow him to take Frankie up to the North Pole is not as easy as he thinks. As he works on trying to get Annie to believe that he is actually one of Santa’s helpers, he realizes that he is falling deeply in love with her, which complicates the situation even more. Will John get Frankie up to the North Pole in time to save Christmas? And will Annie push her cynical attitude aside to make room for love?

Beautiful powdery snow scenes against a background of dark green pines with pops of red adorn this fantasy movie. Last Chance Christmas is the sort of good feeling movie that the entire family can enjoy just before the upcoming holiday season.
