had planned to spend Christmas with
is married with a young son, in the
touching and light-hearted seasonal
film, Lost At Christmas...
STUNNED AND UPSET TO BE REJECTED when he goes down on one knee to present
an engagement ring to his long-term girlfriend on Christmas Eve, Rob (Kenny
Boyle) finds himself alone and despondent at an isolated Scottish railway station
waiting for the train to Glasgow that will never arrive due to the bad weather.
Jen (Natalie Clark: The Last Bus), a young woman with whom he had crossed
paths a short while before, is still reeling from the discovery that Mark (Paul
Kozinski), the man she believed loved her and wanted to marry her, was already
married with a child (delightfully played by Noah McKechnie).
that illustrates how
sharing troubles can
lead to an amazing
heartbroken, Jen still fervently believes in the magic of Christmas and tries
to make the best of the situation. She arrives at the station in a state of
fury and sees a distraught and angry Rob, who cannot understand what has happened
to his relationship and refuses to be drawn into a conversation with Jen.
Desperate to get back to their homes one hundred miles away in Glasgow to be
with their families, Jen and Rob at first clash with each other but then Jen
hits on the idea of repaying Mark for his deception and getting her and Rob
back to Glasgow by cleverly appropriating Mark's much-loved Marcos sports car.
However, on Glen Coe Jen and Rob find themselves trapped by the worsening weather
where, angry and bickering, they are forced to abandon the car and walk to the
nearest village. Across the snow-covered Glen Coe in a blizzard, they come across
The Clachaig Inn where they discover they are not the only ones whose lives
have been turned upside down and who are not in the Christmas spirit.
As there is only one room left at the inn, Jen and Rob are forced to share it
and as they begin to mix with the other guests and the staff at the inn they
begin to bond.
When Rob hears that Jen used to sing he tries to persuade her to join the resident
band for the day but as she used to sing and play the guitar with Mark, she
is not in the mood to do so.
As Christmas Day dawns it seems that the outlook will improve as something magical
and very human begins to happen; but will it be enough to see Jen and Rob stay
together or is their union simply for Christmas?
What begins as a story of two heartbroken young people ends with an outpouring
of the grief that is bottled up by the unhappy locals who have come to spend
Christmas on their own but find something special at the inn. Come in from the
cold with a light-hearted, sentimental seasonal romance that illustrates how
sharing troubles can lead to an amazing experience.
