Here’s the official summary for the film: “As the holidays draw near, a young heiress contends with the affections of a suitor handpicked by her mother. When the handsome chef, Harland Sanders, arrives with his secret fried chicken recipe and a dream, he sets in motion a series of events that unravels the mother’s devious plans. Will our plucky heiress escape to her wintry happily ever after with Harland at her side, or will she cave to the demands of family and duty?”

KFC U.S. CMO Andrea Zahumensky shared a statement about the funny parody movie: “We’re no strangers to heating things up for the holidays, just like our famous fried chicken-scented fire log.
