In the movie, Hall plays Noelle, a hardworking single mom. When her son, Henry, (played by Callum Shoniker), is scolded by a grumpy neighbor, she jumps to her son’s defense. She doesn’t realize that the neighbor is actually a handsome man named Jeremy. When Jeremy comes to the diner where she works, she finds herself attracted to him. But Jeremy can’t believe such a beautiful woman would fall for him. As the two continue to bump into each other, Jeremy tries to summon the courage to ask Noelle out.
This is the second movie that Hall and Sevier have made together for Hallmark. The two starred in Road Trip Romance, which was released in May 2022.
“I had the best time shooting this film with my favorite crew in Ottawa,” Hall wrote in an Instagram post promoting the film. “Hilarious cast! And with the wonderful director @thesamanthawan leading the way.”
