Hudgens plays ‘a kind science teacher who has been disillusioned by love’. The film also stars Josh Whitehouse who assumes the role of medieval knight in (shining) armour (atop a horse), who finds himself cursed into a world much ahead of his time. It is up to Hudgens’ character to help the Knight find his way back home.

Sounds like the perfect holiday romance waiting to happen. Everything about the movie so far exudes fun, festive and romance – a perfect Christmas watch, complete with Christmas lights and snow. Lots of it.
