Lucy Hill (Zellweger) is a high-powered executive in love with her upscale Miami lifestyle. Seeking to snag a big promotion, Lucy agrees to move to a remote Minnesota town to oversee the restructuring of a blue collar manufacturing plant. After enduring icy roads, freezing weather and a chilly reception from the locals, she soon warms up to the small town and its people – especially the town’s handsome union representative (Connick, Jr.).   What begins as a job assignment becomes the best thing ever to happen to her in this heartwarming comedy that proves that the warmest people are often in the coldest places.
