In Serenity, Wyoming single father Beau Julander struggles between raising his two preadolescent children (Brianne and Nicky) and his career. Adding to his overworked schedule is his community volunteerism with this time serving as a member of the Serenity Homecoming Week Committee.
Molly Shepherd has returned for the homecoming festivities. Beau and Molly are attracted to one another and she is so good at nurturing his two kids. However, he carries scars from his ex-wife's desertion of him and their kids. Worse he expects her to leave once the week is over and he refuses to allow any woman to hurt his children like their mother did even if he loves her and she seems to return the feeling for the Julander trio.
This is an affectionate tender holiday fare about relationships. The lead male is a great overwrought character struggling between the right balance for his children, his work, and his community. Forget R&R for him. Molly is a bit too perfect though the audience will enjoy her Mary Poppins manner with the children she quickly loves. The unspiked eggnog crowd will be warmed with this delightfully serene tale.
