When her friends Trisha, Melanie, and Adriana bring gingerbread cookies anyway, Caroline has to think on her feet and find something else to eat. Late at night, she orders pizza online and gets an unexpected jog in her memory as a former friend, and crush, Kim, comes to her door. Can Caroline survive the holiday season with her miserable attitude intact, or does the first woman she ever fell for rekindle the desire to celebrate and fall in love all over again?
