In The Bouquet, two estranged sisters torn apart by their differences suddenly find themselves working together towards a common goal in this heartwarming family drama. For years, overachiever Terri (Kristy Swanson) and her idealistic sister, Mandy (Alberta Mayne), have kept their distance from each other, as well as from their parents’ struggling floral business. But when a tragic turn of events brings both women home, they discover just how much they need one another in order to keep the family legacy going. Filled with romance, humor and hope, it’s an endearing story about making time for the ones you love. Stars: Kristy Swanson, Michael Shanks, Nicola Cavendish, Alberta Mayne, Jeremy Guilbaut, Stephen E. Miller and Danny Glover.
