Sloane recently broke up with her boyfriend and it's the Christmas season. She hates holidays because every time she visits her family, they give her an earful of comments about how she should find someone and settle in her life. She is constantly being set up for dates by her mother, which adds up to her irritation. After the Christmas holiday, she meets Jackson who was stuck with a girl he had no interest in. Sloane and Jackson decide that they’ll pretend to date each other only for specific occasions and festivals to avoid their family’s nonsensical chit-chats. But eventually they start liking each other in the journey of pretence. The story is a perfect example of destiny, where two people meet by chance and develop feelings for each other while providing help in the needed hours.
Do you ever feel like your love is stuck in a different country and you may never find them? After heartbreaks and hitting the rock bottom in love life, this thought may cross one’s mind. Well, Iris and Amanda think the same, two independent women, thriving in their career but lacking in their love life.
Iris, who is still in love with her emotionally unavailable former partner, who cheated on her, finds out that he is getting engaged. She therefore was left heartbroken.
Amanda, who also breaks up with her boyfriend when he confesses that he has been cheating on her, finds Iris’s cottage on a home swap website. Amanda and Iris swap their respective houses and go away to celebrate the holiday in a completely different place hoping that a change of neighbourhood to spend some time alone and to stay away from their terrible life could be a good deviation.

The story unfolds beautifully, and the appropriate setting and locations add up to the charm of the movie.

Everyone in the Whoville town loves Christmas, but they are scared that the Grinch might spoil their Christmas, and well we can’t blame them because the Grinch tries every possible way to sabotage the Christmas celebrations. Grinch lives at the top of a hilly mountain alone and away from the Whos of Whoville town and does not like festivals at all. Grinch once lived in the town with everyone else, when he was adopted as a baby by two women. He was a very shy and timid child who liked a girl in his class, and she liked him too, but his jealous classmate Augustus never lost any chance to make fun of the Grinch as he was hairy. Heartbroken and angry Grinch leaves the town to live alone.
However, while he was downtown trying to spoil the holiday for everyone, he saves Cindy’s life, who after finding out about his past, nominated him for the town’s ‘Holiday Cheermeister’, but the Grinch is reminded of the humiliation he faced during his childhood again.
