Sue Wright and Ken Polk are about to celebrate their third Christmas together. Sue thinks it's about time for Ken to pop the question, but her dreams don't seem to make a blip on his radar. Ken is ready to take Sue to a barbershop Christmas concert; she'd like a romantic evening alone with her beau. They're at the theater when all hell breaks loose ...
Sue and Ken decide to part ways. She's given him enough chances, and it's time for her to hit the road. She links up with her friend from Hawaii, Lani. With dreams of spending Christmas in a town like "It's a Wonderful Life's" fictional Bedford Falls, the two women head to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. Sue gets a job as a radio DJ and prepares for a new life, away from Ken.
Ken thinks Sue and Lani are in southern California, and in an effort to get as far away from his ex as possible, he plans a road trip of his own. He wants to end up at his Uncle Phil and Aunt Betty's place- in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.
Filled with twists of fate, trips to jail, and bone-chilling weather, "Christmas Road Trip" dares to ask ... is there such a thing as destiny?
