Tom (David Sutcliffe, Private Practice) and Liz (Dina Meyer, Birds of Prey) are journalists who work at rival papers in the same city. Tom's employer, the biggest paper in town, is trying to buy the small paper that Liz works for. In an effort to save her newspaper, Liz creates a Christmas column that is an instant hit. The bigger paper responds by assigning Tom to write a rival Christmas column. A chance meeting between the two journalists turns into a public disaster, but is also love at first sight.
