Three Days is an American television film directed by Michael Switzer and starring Kristin Davis, Reed Diamond and Tim Meadows. It premiered on ABC Family in 2001 on its 25 Days of Christmas programming block and was filmed in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. It was the last movie produced for Fox Family, as Disney-ABC officially acquired the network in October 2001. The film received a limited Region 2 DVD release, in PAL format.


Ten years ago, Andrew Farmer (Reed Diamond) married his childhood sweetheart, Beth (Kristin Davis) and the two live in Boston, Massachusetts. Now Andrew is a high-powered literary agent, and his relationship with his wife has not fared as well. After a marital argument about his possible infidelity, Beth runs out at midnight and, whilst trying to retrieve their neighbors' dog in the middle of the street, she is killed by a car, on Christmas Eve. An angel, Lionel (Tim Meadows), gives Andrew the chance to relive the last three days as if his wife was alive. There's a catch: he cannot change the fate of his wife. There's only one gift he can give to save her life and he only has a very short time to figure out what that gift is. So Andrew spends three days trying to make Beth as happy and figure how to keep her alive, while finding out what he would really be losing.



The original story and teleplay was conceived and written by Robert Tate Miller while living in the North Hollywood neighborhood of Los Angeles. "I was inspired by Frank Capra's It's a Wonderful Life," Miller said. "I wanted to write a story with heart and, unlike most scripts which take many weeks to hammer out, Three Days came very quickly. It was as if the story wrote itself."
