Rory's Christmas Angel has something for everyone! Heart-warming emotion, family values, humor, and romance. Frankie Chandler is a former Naval nurse, pursuing her dream of becoming a veterinarian while helping raise her nephew. She's too busy to think about love.

This story is a face-paced, emotional journey between two smart, mature characters who still harbor insecurities. Add in the charming, insightful, and no-filter elements of two children who only want to see their loved ones happy, and you have the makings of a story that'll make you laugh as well as shed happy tears. A perfect made-for-television movie the entire family will enjoy.
