Premiering Nov. 5, the holiday rom-com is the first scripted film to shoot on the island of Guam. People Magazine can exclusively announce that Operation Christmas Drop will premiere Nov. 5.

Here’s the synopsis: “Chasing a promotion, congressional aide Erica Miller forgoes family Christmas to travel across the Pacific at her boss’s behest. Upon landing at a beachside Air Force base, she clashes with her guide, Captain Andrew Jantz, who knows her assignment is finding reasons to defund the facility. The pilot’s pet project Operation: Christmas Drop, a genuine, decades-old tradition where gifts and supplies are parachuted to residents of remote neighboring islands has lawmakers wondering if his unit has too much spare energy. Despite their initial opposing goals, Erica softens once she experiences the customs and communal spirit of Andrew’s adopted home.”
Written by Gregg Rossen and Brian Sawyer, the movie was directed by Martin Wood and produced by Brad Krevoy and Steve McGlothen. Amanda Phillips Atkins, Jimmy Townsend, Eric Jarboe and Amy Krell served as executive producers. Operation Christmas Drop releases globally Nov. 5. on Netflix.
