Jennifer Jones, who Jessica Schram plays, is a free-spirited marine doctor who loves to travel and doesn’t want to settle down. However, her journey takes a strange turn when she has to do a favor for a college friend and ends up in the adorable coastal town of Mystic, Connecticut, during the holiday season. Juniper gets a brief job at the Marine Mammal Rehabilitation Center and Aquarium. There, she works hard to help a lovable seal named Peppermint get better so it can go back to the wild.
As Juniper works hard on her task, she starts to enjoy Mystic, its friendly people, and, much to her surprise, Sawyer, the owner of the pizza shop down the street (played by Chandler Massey). They had a romantic meeting many years ago, and when they see each other again, it’s awkward at first. But as they both decide to move on with their lives and forget about the past, their strong bond comes back to life.
Yet, time is not on their side, as Juniper’s stay in Mystic is only temporary, and Sawyer is adamant about remaining in his hometown to run his beloved pizza shop despite harboring dreams beyond. Through their emotional journey, Juniper’s commitment to her role, her interns, and the town’s supportive community gradually anchors her spirit to Mystic. She soon finds herself embracing the holiday spirit and questioning her once unshakable plans for the future.
Juniper’s transformative experience inspires Sawyer to chase his lifelong dreams, while Mystic, with its warm-hearted inhabitants, teaches Juniper the true meaning of belonging to a close-knit community.
