What Is Hallmark’s The Angel Tree About?
According to the Hallmark press release, Rebecca (Wagner) is a magazine writer with a special assignment. She needs to uncover a mysterious benefactor. Turns out, Rebecca grew up in Pine River, where there was a very magical tradition. Every single holiday, The Angel Tree appears in Pine River’s town square. Out of nowhere! This is when the “magic begins.”
The Pine River townsfolk write down their wishes. They put them on the tree. Magically, they come true. That is because a mysterious benefactor grants those wishes. Rebecca’s assignment is to figure out who that benefactor is.
Rebecca has a personal reason to uncover the identity of the benefactor. She once put a wish on The Angel Tree. It was to stay in town. But, that wish never came true.
Meanwhile, Rebecca reconnects with Matthew (Bryant), an old friend in Pine River. Matthew isn’t just there to reconnect. He is trying to keep Rebecca from finding out the truth. Matthew believes the benefactor’s identity should remain a secret, and he prevents Rebecca from uncovering the truth.
Moreover, as Rebecca gets closer to the truth, she finds her own personal truth. She rediscovers her own need for community, family and “the magic of the Angel Tree.”
Hallmark Christmas Movie Filmed In Summerland, BC
According to the Salmon Arm Observer, some of The Angel Tree was filmed in Summerland, BC. Hopefully, the local Canadian residents were friendlier this time around. Just a few months ago, they protested American flags being used for a movie that was filmed there.
