Production on the project began on Wednesday.
Wagner stars as Janie, a rising marketing executive living in The Big Apple, who returns to her hometown of Woodland Falls when her Great-Uncle Randall passes away. Randall surprises Janie with a special gift: the family homestead, her childhood home.
While not immediately sure what to do, Janie agrees to honor Randall’s final request to plan and host Woodland Falls’ annual Winter Wonderland. She will be further surprised by who her late uncle has arranged to help her: his farmhand Dylan (Mathison).
With a boyfriend anxiously waiting for her return in Manhattan, Janie begins to feel an unexpected emotional tug about living life in a more authentic, meaningful way.
