Kirk Franklin‘s The Night Before Christmas is set to air on Lifetime this holiday season. 

The network released a first look of the film this week: an image of stars Naturi Naughton and Luke James, who stand gazing at one another in front of holiday decor. 

The movie follows an estranged mother and daughter, played by Naughton and Lorea Turner, who are caught in a blizzard on Christmas Eve and are forced to take refuge in a church. There, they meet others who are trapped inside. The group, including handsome youth pastor Adam, played by James, and a music teacher, Kirk, weathers the wintry storm together. Through music, faith and love, James and Franklin’s characters help the mother/daughter duo reconcile their differences. Together they put on an unforgettable Christmas performance. 

Kirk Franklin’s The Night Before Christmas premieres December 10 at 8 p.m. on Lifetime.
