Max ensures that he meets Judith as frequently as possible. He charms her children and her sister-in-law, Amy. He gets her to accept his invitation to spend Christmas at his estate. He plans to make Judith fall in love with him, the way he once loved her, and then abandon her, just as she once abandoned him.

But Christmas, the season for love, peace and forgiveness works to weaken Max's desire for vengeance. Max realizes he still loves Judith.
