Richard Spence directs this made-for-TV drama starring Ken Stott, Lesley Manville and Kevin Whately. Set during the festive period, the feature follows Mike (Stott), a cheerfully roguish type whose charm has gradually eroded over the years courtesy of his addiction to alcohol. However, Mike's involvement in a road accident changes his perspective on life. He begins visiting a Salvation Army shelter where he falls in love with Captain Annie Sullivan (Manville) and begins dreaming of a second chance. Will Mike win his heart's desire or does another fate lie in store for him?
