Lifetime’s yet another Christmas flick, Miracle in Motor City, is set to make the holiday season entertaining. This film is a beautiful romantic drama that brings two ex-flames together.

Miracle in Motor City tells the story of Amber Dupont, who makes big promises to the people of her church that she will invite Motown Legend Smokey Robinson to the annual Christmas pageant.

The official synopsis reads:

“Amber Dupont bites off more than she can chew when she takes charge of her church’s annual Christmas pageant and inadvertently promises to deliver a special performance by Motown Legend Smokey Robinson.”

While she is struggling to handle all the arrangements, Amber’s friends enlist her former boyfriend Eddie to help her. The duo then joins hands to find Robinson and bring him to the event. Will love spark again between Amber and Eddie? Only time will tell whether a Christmas miracle is on the card for Amber or not.

Meanwhile, let’s have a look at the main cast members of Miracle in Motor City.
