The Tree That Saved Christmas - UP Original Movie

Premiere: Sunday, November 30 at 7:00 P.M. EST / 6:00 P.M. PST

Imaginative, hard-working Molly Logan (Lacey Chabert) grew up on her family’s generations-old Christmas tree farm in rural Vermont and would often write stories about individual trees as they shipped out, her favorite being a “Charlie Brown” tree struggling to grow.   One day, after hearing the roar of buzz saws used to clear the woods of sickly saplings, nine-year-old Molly ran to save her favorite –  even after her father Gordon and his crew had made a gash in its trunk.    She knew that someday this little tree would have a tale to tell.  Now 29, Molly is pursuing her writing career in Manhattan.  Unfortunately as Pendant Publishing CEO Walter Dunlap’s assistant, Molly has no life and little chance to write.   She's  devastated to learn from her architect brother Ryan that the bank is foreclosing on her parents’ heritage tree farm.  This will be her family’s last Christmas  there.  However, a frustrated Molly can’t make it home thanks to obligations to her boss and his young daughters.  Much to her shock, Molly discovers that the Christmas tree she ordered for the Dunlap home is that same one she saved years ago.  Certain that it is the same tree from her youth –  and a sign –  Molly drags the pine  back to her Vermont home and embarks upon a plan to save the family farm – with some surprising, inventive help from her brother and former boyfriend/banker Lucas. Stars: Lacey Chabert (“Party of Five”).
