New Hallmark movie
Emilie Ullerup stars as Abby, who agrees to accompany her friend (played by Meghan Heffern) on a wilderness retreat. When she arrives, she is shocked to see Sean (Peter Mooney) her best friend from high school.
Abby and Sean had a falling out the night of their high school graduation party and haven’t seen each other since. When they get separated from the rest of the group on a hike, they must work together to find their way back to the campsite. Along the way, sparks fly.
