The heartwarming holiday tale "Mistletoe over Manhattan" tells the story of Mrs. Claus' mission to find Christmas spirit for her stressed-out husband, who is on the brink of retiring. In her search for holiday joy, Rebecca, Mrs. Claus (Moore) ends up helping a family, torn apart by divorce, to rediscover the power of love just in time for Christmas! The film stars Tricia Helfer ("Battlestar Galactica," "Burn Notice"), Greg Bryk ("Happy Town," "History of Violence"), Tedde Moore ("The Kennedys") and Mairtin O'Carrigan ("The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day")
