A workaholic advertising executive discovers that there may just be more to life than the daily grind in this warmhearted Christmas comedy from director Maggie Greenwald. Jane (Nancy McKeon) is a type-A go-getter who has little time to think about such things as family and the holiday spirit, but when a minor traffic mishap sends her reeling into a strange parallel universe, Jane's hectic schedule is turned inside out. Awakening from the accident to discover that she is suddenly a stay-at-home mother of two and happily married to kindly charity worker Sam (Steven Eckholdt), Jane desperately attempts to sort out her disorienting dilemma while simultaneously preparing Christmas dinner for the family. Could it be that Jane has finally discovered what has been missing from her life for all these years?
