It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Los Angeles and commuters have Pepper  Sterling (Tilky Jones), a cynical and funny radio comic, to keep them entertained. When Pepper's latest radio antics anger an im portant advertising executive, he gets shipped over to a sister station, KBRG in Idyllwild, Colorado, to serve out his suspension until the dust blows over. Sandy Love  (Haylie Duff), following in her father’s footsteps, loves radio and came home  to Idyllwild  to host her own talk show.  She is unapologetically romantic and nostalgic, especially at Christmas. Thrown together  as co-hosts on her show “Dr. Love in the Morning,”  she is immediately at odds with Pepper,  who never met a sentiment he couldn’t twist into a punchline  and has no use for Christmas.  When Samantha and Pepper’s “war of words” catches the attention of the small town, their  joint show becomes a hit and they start to see something in each other.

The two discuss their love of music and Peter's long since forgotten dreams of becoming a musician when he was younger. When Bob invites Peter to his home for dinner with his family followed by a jam session, Peter has no idea that Bob's home is a shelter and that his family is comprised of the other homeless men. After speaking to Sister Agatha, the tough, straight-talking nun at the shelter, Peter, reevaluating his life, decides the best way he can help is to form a choir at the shelter, the choir's performances which would help give a little extra pocket money to its members so that they can have a merrier Christmas. The choir faces many obstacles, including the dichotomy between Peter and its members, unrealized expectations and Sister Agatha's skepticism. But the biggest obstacles may be the baggage each person brings to the group, the person with the largest baggage being perhaps Peter himself, who has long been estranged from his alcoholic father. Through it all, Marilyn, a new friend of Peter's, is by his side hoping that she can provide a little assistance and guidance to Peter realizing his dreams.
