William Holt is the heir apparent to the top job at Chicago-based Holt Enterprises upon his father Jim Holt’s imminent retirement.

User Reviews: Paul Campbell wrote and starred in this Christmas movie. Well acted as he and Kimberley Sustad team up for the third time. They have excellent chemistry together as Campbell plays a character with nice humor and wit but is a bit of a screw-off. Sustad is the shoulder to the grindstone character and it works.

The supporting players are well written and well cast. I hope Campbell writes more screenplays. Well worth the time.
