Storyline

A father struggles with the past. A daughter fights for the future. A mother searches for answers. The Boyajians have not celebrated Christmas in 11 years. They lost their faith when they lost their son to the Persian Gulf War. Now a stranger has joined them - around the same age the boy would have been. Is he a con artist? Or is this young man the miracle their family has been waiting for. William Devane, Reagan Pasternak and Dean McDermott star in a remarkable story of loss and renewal. This Christmas, a stranger will change them forever. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

John Boyajian's uniform. He has the 7th Special Forces Flash on his beret, but 7th SFG(A) did not deploy to either Operation Desert Shield or Desert Storm. He furthermore wears the Kuwait Liberation Medal (Govt. of Kuwait) and Kuwait Liberation Medal (Govt. of Saudi Arabia) ribbons on his rack, but these where not awarded till after the end of Operation Desert Storm. Also he wears his name shield incorrectly over his right breast pocket (the place where his Distinctive Unit Insignia should have been) instead of centered on the flap of his right breast pocket. Besides that he doesn't know how to wear his beret and his uniform seems to large he doesn't wear his pants bloused over jump boots. See more »

Quotes

Matthew: ...it's like light and dark. The moonlight touches down on the field and becomes apart of its beauty. Darkness is also it's light. What do you see when you look out there? Do you see the darkness or the moonlight? Or both? Can you separate the two? Should you?

One of the Best Christmas Movies
17 December 2003 | by (Eastern Oregon) – See all my reviews

I have seen alot of christmas movies, especially this year, most of them are boring, but i watched this one the other night, and it is truely one of the best movies about the true meaning of christmas I have seen in a long time. Stars William Devane and Merideth Baxter as the parents of two children, the oldest son John goes off to fight in the gulf war and dies before christmas, the family gets the news on christmas eve and from then on they never celebrate christmas again. 10 years later when their daughter finds a lump in her breast. William Devane asks for a sign from God to help them get their lives back.

Its a wonderful christmas movie, its not as exciting as some movies, but not everyone has to have santa claus and rudolph. I highly recommend this movie.
