She will have her first Christmas without her grandpa, Jerry; and so she wishes for just five more minutes with him. However, Grandpa doesn’t come back however her wish is fulfilled differently as she finds Grandpa Jerry’s journal. She discovers love through it.
There’s just something about Christmas which the filmmakers can’t resist! Hallmark’s Five More Minutes is one of the sweet romance movies that take place around Christmas. The movie is pretty much about a wish that came true in an unexpected but mesmerizing way. The main characters are Nikki Deloach as Clara and David Haydn-Jones as Logan. The movie is directed by Linda-Lisa Hayter; Hallmark produced the film (pretty much obvious). Writing credits goes to Andy Sandberg and Jamie Pachino.
