Steven Brand in "The Cabin" - world premiere 30 July
Lea Thompson ("Jane Doe," "Back to the Future") stars with Steven Brand ("Covert Affairs") in the World Premiere of The Cabin, a Hallmark Movie Channel Original Premiere, on Saturday 30 July (8p.m. ET/PT, 7C). What was supposed to be a vacation of culture, adventure and ancestral bonding, becomes the Clash of the Macs, when two divorced strangers with nothing in common but their last name, battle as they are forced to share the same cabin with their kids in Scotland.
Lily MacDougal (Thompson) and Conor MacDougal (Brand) are single parents who share the same surname, but have little else in common. Lily and Conor have each brought their children to Scotland to enter a national Clan Mac-type affair called the "Meeting of the Macs." But when a careless booking agent accidentally assigns Lily's family and Conor's to the same cabin, a civil war ensues reminiscent of the War of Scottish Independence. Through a series of mishaps, Lily and Conor struggle to get along as their families are now entered into the competition as a single team, which further means they will need to get along in order to get ahead and win. Will the warring "Macs" set aside personal differences for the greater good, or will it take another Treaty of Edinburgh to bring peace back to the tiny Scottish hamlet?
