"On the sixth day of Christmas my TV gave to meeee...Hallmark's The Wishing Treeeee."
Everyone's favorite Iron Eagle, Jason Gedrick, stars as Evan, a quirky English teacher at a boarding school whose job is on the line. Oh and he's a widower. And he gets stuck taking care of the school's orphan kids, the ones who had nowhere to go for Christmas. One of those kids is a spoiled rich boy whose parents are too busy getting divorced to spend any time with him. One kid is a poor girl from the west coast who can't afford to go home. The third and final kid is a nerdy guy who wants to get extra work done or something.
There's also a very pretty and kind of pushy lady teacher, Clarissa, who has her eye on the widowed (widowered?) Evan. He's still having dreams of his dead wife so there doesn't seem to be much room for Clarissa. Especially because poor Evan is trying to get spoiled rich boy under control. He destroyed the town's titular wishing tree along with the hopes and dreams of all those who left a wish on said tree. West coast poor girl wants to be a singer but has stage fright. And nerdy guy just wants a date or something.
