Confused by these sentiments, Diana is forced to reevaluate her priorities and choose what is really worth fighting for.

This year, Emily is hoping for a memorable holiday and is anticipating a long-awaited proposal from her long-distance boyfriend Brian (Cotton). When the parade director hires wealthy development consultant, Henry Williams (Cupo), to analyze the finances of the parade and increase profits, Emily immediately writing Henry off as a privileged playboy. As Thanksgiving draws nearer, will Emily be able to confess her true feelings and end the feud, while still putting on the parade of her dreams? Stars Autumn Reeser ("No Ordinary Family"), Antonio Cupo ("Bomb Girls"), and Ben Cotton ("Hellcats").
