In the new Hallmark movie Field Day, Rachel Boston stars as a woman who must cooperate with two other moms to create the ultimate fall festival for school. Though the women come from different backgrounds, they soon find they have more in common than they first thought.
Boston’s character also finds love with a handsome PE teacher played by Hallmark favorite Benjamin Ayres.
New Hallmark movie
In Field Day, Jen (Boston), Marissa (Amit), and Kelly (Chan-Kent) are moms from different backgrounds who are thrown together to plan the annual Field Day at their kids’ school. Along the way, they navigate a myriad of obstacles, including an unsupportive head of the PTO.
“New to town and still trying to move on following the loss of her husband, Jen is thankful to have the encouragement of Dan (Ayres), the school’s P.E. teacher who is becoming a good friend…or could this be the start of something more?” reads a synopsis from Hallmark. “As the planning continues, Jen, Marissa, and Kelly bond as friends who will stop at nothing to make sure their kids are happy, with each of them finding their own path as their friendship grows stronger.”
