Overview

A little girl's search for Santa brings two lonely people the gift of love.

Reporter Amanda Donnelly hates Christmas--and she's not that fond of kids, either. So when she's assigned a story about kids visiting Santa Claus at the mall, she wants it over with as fast as possible. But when Virginia, the cute little girl she features becomes a hit, Amanda's producer wants Virginia to visit more mall Santas and pick the best one by Christmas Eve. Unfortunately, Virginia's busy single dad, Kirk, is that rare parent who isn't impressed by the opportunity to have his daughter on TV. Amanda quickly learns that if she wants to guarantee that Virginia shows up for a taping, she'll have to drive her. They spend a lot of time together and in spite of herself, Amanda grows fond of the little girl. After Kirk unexpectedly joins them one Saturday, she finds herself drawn to him--and the feeling is mutual. But a workaholic father and a lonely little girl who wants a mommy do not fit in Amanda's life plan. She works crazy hours--once the story is over, she won't have time to spend with them. Christmas approaches and Kirk says he loves her. But does he love Amanda for herself, or is he looking for a mother for Virginia?
