What Is Lifetime’s Kirk Franklin’s The Night Before Christmas About?

According to The Futon Critic, “Caught in a blizzard on Christmas Eve, estranged mother and daughter Journee (Naturi Naughton) and Nia (Turner) are forced to take refuge inside a church where a handful of also-trapped parishioners are reeling from the cancellation of their annual holiday concert.”

“The spirit of the season takes hold as Journee and Nia weather the wintry storm together with the other churchgoers, including handsome youth pastor Adam (James) and a heavenly music teacher (Franklin), who motivate the mother and daughter to reconcile their differences through music, faith, and love.”

“With the help from this unlikely yet spirited group of strangers, Journee and Nia band together to help the church salvage not only their holiday traditions but also their show-stopping Christmas day performance, despite the raging storm outside.”
