23 June 2000 | by (Sabrevois,Quebec) – See all my reviews

My mother recorded this tv movie when it played and i recorded over it.Tried finding it for many years after without any luck.This story reminded my mom of her mother,a heart warming story of love and family at xmas time,it wasn't IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE but to my mother it was a piece of her younger days with her mother caught on film.Hope to see it again someday.
