Dani and Claire, both mothers, had to postpone their Broadway aspirations to prioritize their families.

Claire raises her two young boys alone after her husband left her to pursue a Broadway career. Dani, on the other hand, supports her husband and aspiring-dancer-daughter, while neglecting her own dreams.

Things change when Dani’s brother, a dance teacher, chooses both Dani and Claire to participate in a prestigious talent competition.

Throughout the competition, Dani and Claire reignite their Broadway aspirations and hoped for a chance to revive their performing careers.

"We both dreamed of being on Broadway. Your dream role is Dream Girls. We're the Dream Moms."

The performing mothers don glitzy and playful outfits to showcase their talents!

Audrey and Matthew are two very different people. Audrey is a game designer and Matthew markets and sells. However, despite their differences, the two have been asked to come together and create a game about love – something that both of them have struggled with in the past.

At first, the two had difficulty communicating with each other and as a result, there were many setbacks and obstacles that threatened to impede their progress. But despite all of these difficulties, Audrey and Matthew managed to push through and work together to create a beautiful game about love.

The game they created was unique in the way that it brought people together. It took players on a journey and along the way, the game was able to teach them the value of love. As players made their way through the game, they were able to learn more about the importance of love and how it can bring people together.

The game was a beautiful reminder for both of them that love is the most important thing in our lives and it can bring us together even when it seems impossible.

As Audrey and Matthew watched the game become successful, they were reminded of the journey they had gone through in order to create the game.

This movie features lots of games, including my favorite - chess! I loved seeing people playing in the park, a classic movie chess game sight!

Winning Team

It’s not often that we get to see a soccer movie on the big screen, but it was a refreshing change of pace to see one on Hallmark!

It was great to see a different type of sports movie, and I’m grateful that it gave a platform to successful women athletes. I also loved the diversity in casting, which made the movie much more interesting to watch.

Kristoffer’s performance as Ian was particularly noteworthy, and he was able to portray his character’s complex emotions after a difficult divorce. The casting also featured a diverse range of actors and actresses that really made the movie stand out from the usual sports movie.

The movie had a great balance of sports action and romance. It was also neat to see the seemingly effortless chemistry between Ian and Emily, which made me genuinely believe that they were deeply in love.

For those who have soccer enthusiasts in their life, consider getting them foldable soccer goals, a soccer play table, or other soccer-related items as potential gift options for the soccer stars in your life.

Two years ago, Noelle’s world was turned upside down when her beloved daughter, Toni, passed away. Noelle was devastated and lost in a deep grief that felt like it would never end.

Little did she know, however, that a chance meeting with her new neighbor, Grace, would be the start of something that would change her life and heal her broken heart. Grace is the daughter of Jack. Grace had recently lost her mother, Jack’s wife, and was struggling with her own grief. Despite the sadness that encircled them both, Noelle, Grace and Jack found solace in each other’s company, helping to carry one another through the pain.

With time, Noelle and Jack began to build a bond that transcended their grief and, eventually, they grew to love one another. That love extended to Jack’s daughter, Grace, as well. Embracing her as part of their new family, Noelle and Jack were determined to find joy and hope in the face of loss, honoring Toni’s memory along the way.

Today, Noelle, Jack, and Grace are a family and, although Toni is not with them in body, she is ever-present in the love and joy that fills their home. Despite the tragedy that brought them all together, the trio is able to find strength and peace in one another, reminding us all of the power of love, even in the darkest of times.

"Sometimes wishes do come true, just not in the way you think they will."

Noelle enjoys teaching Shakespeare at the local college. She finds solace in reading sonnets and sharing the meaning behind them with her students. In her own way, Shakespeare's sonnets help her cope with her grief.
