Exclusive Clip: Essence Atkins Reaches Her Breaking Point in TV One’s Original Holiday Movie ‘Coins For Christmas’ [WATCH]

Below is the “Coins For Christmas” synopsis:

Atkins plays single mom Madison, who gets fired from the bookstore she manages and comes home to find that the IRS has frozen her bank account due to delinquent taxes her ex-husband failed to pay. Desperate to pay bills and buy gifts for her children, she jumps into the ever-popular “gig economy.” That’s when she gets hired by arrogant, sidelined former professional football player Alec Darby (Bishop), who is also secretly on the verge of going broke. This odd couple butt heads time and time again but can the Christmas spirit help these two get past their bickering, and ultimately forge a lasting friendship?
