But as you’d expect, chaos ensues. With both of them having the thoughtful idea, their plans backfire. And with the heaviest snowfall in years, they are trapped at each others’ family home, forcing them to spend Christmas with the other’s family without their partner. This leads the couple to discover each other's deepest secrets but with these revelations, will their relationship survive?
