Storyline

In the approach to Christmas 1938, much is happening in the lives of the Bailey and Sutton families of New Bedford. Grace Mainwairing and her mother - the Bailey family matriarch, May Bailey - are in Europe collecting the remains of Grace's husband, Van, who was killed in the war in Spain. Hub Bailey is in the seminary at the University of Toronto. Back in New Bedford, Hub's mother, Honey Sutton, is following in her son's footsteps and is also a University of Toronto student. She is taking courses by correspondence although she would rather take classes in person in Toronto. Honey's husband, Max, has to take over many of the household duties because of Honey's busy schedule, this in addition to his regular work as the school's principal and the town mayor. This leaves no time for his passion, writing. Even this year's Christmas pageant, which is being directed by May's daughter-in-law, Toppy Bailey, was written by science teacher, Jim Flett. Jim's lack of play writing skills is ... Written by Huggo

This was about a young girl (a Jew) being smuggled into Canada and being taken in by a small town
22 December 2002 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a GREAT made for TV movie! The actors were just great. Meredith Henderson who played Anna Schiller the refuge. I've seen her in Shirley Holmes....AND SHE DOES NOT HAVE THAT ACCENT! it was great. I don't know how to explain the story and how amazing it was it's just something you have to see for yourself!
