Jake Epsetin, who is starring in the lead role of Adam has revealed that this Hallmark film is more human and also explained the reason behind it.
He said in a recent interview,
“Yes, romances can happen, but what happens next? What’s the reality of families meeting? Will they get along? Job stuff, does that get in the way of the relationship? It’s kind of a really loving portrayal of a real love story.”
The movie is directed by Peter DeLuise from the scripts given by Karen Berger and has been produced by Robert Lycar under TWC Productions Inc with Joey Plager, Ellie Kanner, Fernando Szew, Jamie Goehring, and Shawn Williamson are joining as executive producers.

Jake Epstein has recently posted some behind the scene photos on his Instagram showing all the cast and crew members including director Peter DeLuise.
The Canadian province is well-known among Hallmark filmmakers and when a legendary director like Peter DeLuise is directing then the energy of cast is on another level. Vancouver has become synonymous with Hallmark Productions.
Production team blindly choose Vancouver as their shooting location because of its film friendly environment and neighbors surrounding the area where the exact shooting was taking place.
Even though, the exact locations have been kept under the wraps. Most likely, the whole filming was done in a production camp that the team set in the westernmost province of British Columbia.
