What Is Hallmark’s Making Spirits Bright About?
According to the Hallmark press release, Grace Ryan (Cole) is the co-owner of a Richmond-based home staging company. She returns to her hometown to be with her family for the Christmas holiday.
The Ryans, seasonal holiday decorators, are competing in the annual Bright Nights contest for the opportunity to not only secure a lucrative contract to decorate every municipal building in town next season, but also a substantial cash prize.
With Grace’s father’s furniture business on the ropes financially, this prize could turn his fortunes around.
However, they will have to compete against Mr. Ryan’s (Chalk) ex-business partner-turned-arch-nemesis Frank Sotto (Cassini) and his family. In addition, they are all competing against a tech-heavy newcomer.
Meanwhile, as Grace reunites with her childhood friend, Tony Sotta (Marks), Frank’s handsome son, they realize the only chance the families have to defeat the new tech-heavy company is to team up.
Therefore, can the two families put aside their differences to work together towards a common goal? Moreover, can they possibly mend a decades-old feud?
