If you don’t believe in miracles, you will. If you don’t think people can turn their lives around and in the process, turn around the lives of others, you will and if you don’t think angels are beside us and within us, you will. In what has been hailed as “A Christmas Carol” meets “It’s a Wonderful Life”, “The Beautiful Angel… A Christmas Love Story” is a tender and heartwarming story about life and death, hope and despair, compassion and indifference…and second chances. Meet Morgan Stern. Morgan is in her thirties. She is bright, successful, wealthy, and as Director of Sales for Hightower Health and Fitness, she is making her mark in the Chicago business world. But while she may be wealthy and successful in the material sense, spiritually she is all but bankrupt. Her life choices have brought her great acclaim and a penthouse apartment, but little in the way of deep connections to those around her. She has reached the goals she set for herself years earlier, but at the expense of others for whom she has little regard and less empathy. Then, on a cold December morning, her past literally collides with her present as she is struck by a car and seriously, maybe even fatally, injured. In that moment, as Morgan faces her death, she leaves the “real” world and meets the angel that will guide her into her future. A future that Morgan herself must create by revisiting her past. Suddenly it is 15 years earlier and Morgan is back in high school. And like all the other popular kids at Lincoln High, Morgan has thorough disdain for clumsy, wimpy, four-eyed George Hornsby. George annoys her, is constantly running into her, and for the most part, is useless. Or so she thinks! Only this time around, Morgan discovers the real George Hornsby: he is bright, ambitious, extremely intelligent, and a devoted son to his widowed mother. George is also a resident of Westside Homeless Shelter, a fact that he has managed to hide from his classmates, including Morgan. That is, until now. Following him home one day, Morgan discovers George’s secret, but instead of being disdainful, the “new” Morgan feels a flicker of warmth, and she and George become friends. As the friendship grows between the two, it comes to light that Westside has lost its funding and within weeks its residents will, once again, be on the streets. Morgan, with her newfound sense of compassion, is determined to save the shelter. But can the shelter be redeemed? Where will the money come from? Can the enterprising 18-year-old Morgan use her future skills to solve a present problem? Can Morgan Stern…be redeemed?
