Holly - Tia Mowry
Marci - Tori Spelling


Blessed with an extraordinary singing voice, Holly (Tia Mowry) is all set to audition for the newly vacated place in the famous Ridgefield, Connecticut Christmas group "The Mistle-Tones," which was founded by her late mother forty years ago. Shocked and upset when the slot goes to Stacy, the barely talented best friend of the group's de facto leader, Marci (Tori Spelling), Holly winds up convincing the local Mall Manager to hold a competition for the best Christmas group to host the yearly Christmas presentation at the mall. Putting together a group of her own with a few members from her office, Holly finds herself on a journey to the real meaning of Christmas, with a new singing group and a new love thrown in for good measure.
