Motherlover and Daughter


With the loss of her father a year earlier, eleven-year-old Janice doesn't feel too excited for Christmas.

No, not exactly the "most wonderful time of the year." Is it any wonder that Janice and her mother look to their respective dream boats, Justin Timberlake and Harrison Ford, to sweep them away to a more pleasant place? In between narrating her dolls' bickering sessions at insane tea parties, Janice decides to attempt her own Christmas miracle and heal her family.
