Based on the Janette Oke novel, When Calls The Heart is set in a 19th century coal town and follows Elizabeth, a young teacher accustomed to her high society life who receives her first classroom post in a small prairie town in the Western Frontier. She must deal with her restless students as well as the new Constable in town, Jack Thornton. Elizabeth will have to learn the ways of the frontier if she wishes to thrive in the rural west. The drama series stars Daniel Lissing, Erin Krakow, Jack Wagner, Lori Loughlin, Pascale Hutton and Kavan Smith.

In the opening episode of the show’s fifth season, which is a feature-length Christmas special, Elizabeth’s (Krakow) fiancé, Jack (Lissing), surprises her, coming home on leave and bringing a young Mountie desperately searching for Christmas inspiration. The community of Hope Valley works together to aid this young man with the help of an enchanted Wishing Tree. And as mayor, Abigail (Loughlin) is pretty busy. Recognizing this, her newly adopted son, Cody (Carter Ryan Evancic), engages classmates in creating the town’s annual Christmas Celebration. While Sheriff Bill Avery (Wagner) forges a relationship with the disgraced former mayor, Henry Gowen (Martin Cummins), Rosemary (Hutton) and Lee (Smith) are reminded that family is the true meaning of Christmas.
