Jane Berry’s life is very materialistic.  She’s engaged to a jerk who doesn’t have a clue and doesn’t appreciate her, but she seems happy in her Manhattan apartment and her important job and her fancy cars.  On her way to a Christmas party, she’s in an auto accident and hit very hard on the head.   When she wakes she finds herself in a life that is not hers at all.  She has two children, and a husband.  They are barely getting by and her only job besides volunteering at the food bank is a housewife and mother.  She’s appalled and confused by it all, and tries to get her old life back.  But nobody from her former life remember her much, but as someone who used to work there, but who left the company ten years before.  Even her parents seem to accept the fact that she has been married for ten years and is a Mom, but she won’t have any part of it.   This is a wonderful movie and one of my favorites every year.  Nancy McKeon is awesome in this film. I never seem to tire of this film and even though I know the story by heart, I still can’t tear myself away.  This is one of my favorite holiday made for TV films, for sure!
