'Christmas Under Wraps,' is about a woman named Lauren (Candace Cameron Bure), who has her entire life planned out, loses her boyfriend and residency at a top Seattle hospital on the same day - she reluctantly takes a residency position in Alaska. That's where she meets Andy and his father, and she slowly begins embracing her simpler (unplanned) life in Alaska. But as luck would have it she gets the position she originally hoped for, and now she must choose between the life she always wanted or her new life in Alaska.
Bure's brother Kirk also recently celebrated the success of his new Christmas film, 'Saving Christmas'. Despite the heavy criticism of the film the actor said that over four million people went out to watch the film in its premiere week.
