Summary

A Christmas to remember for a friend they'll never forget

Four friends
While on holiday twenty-five years ago, Freya and her three best friends created a bucket list. As they talked about families, careers and travelling, the future seemed bright, full of hope and most importantly guaranteed...

One promise
Now, Freya and two friends are travelling to Iceland in memory of the friend they've lost, determined to fulfil her dream of seeing the Northern lights. Nothing - not even a snowstorm - is going to stop them.

A life-changing adventure
When an avalanche leaves them stranded, a handsome local, Petur, comes to the rescue and shows them how the community come together to survive. With Christmas fast approaching, the women throw themselves into village life preparing for the festive celebrations.

As Freya's love for the village and feelings for Petur grow, could this be her chance to find true happiness?
