Keeping a Christmas Promise
  • Keeping a Christmas Promise

  • One Icelandic holiday. One snowstorm. The adventure of a lifetime.

    Freya has one wish this Christmas... to visit Iceland and track down the illusive Northern Lights in memory of her beloved friend. Nothing - not even a snowstorm - is going to stop her.

    But when an avalanche leaves her stranded in a remote village with no way to contact the outside world, handsome and enigmatic Petur comes to her rescue, giving her a place to stay in his farmhouse. In this harsh yet beautiful landscape, Petur and his community must come together in order to survive.

    Stepping up to help Petur with the Christmas celebrations, chef Freya is determined to make this most of her time here, cooking delicious fresh food and delivering it to the friendly locals. But as her feelings for Petur and love for the village begin to grow, she is about to discover that the greatest adventures are the ones you don't expect...
