US Army sergeant Cody Cullen's horror tour in Afghanistan ends when his fellow soldier Jonesy is killed in an attack while they are delivering medical supplies in Nurestan. Cody is put on leave and goes to return private possessions to Jonesy's bride turned widow. On his way home he passes Nevada City, California, where he meets Faith Spelman, who writes the parish's Christmas cards to lonely soldiers, who had coincidentally included him, an orphan. He happens to save her dad Luke from a serious car run-over. The Spellmans invite Cody home for dinner, then the Christmas tide. He proves a great help in the family logging firm. Vietenam vet Luke wants Cody as son-in-law, but although charmed, Faith still seems committed to rarely present fiancé Paul, a wine broker. Written by
In the scene where the Commanding Officer is giving Jones's dog tags to Cullen both dog tags are there. Military members killed or injured have one dog tag left with them, the 2nd dog tag is removed and used for notification purposes. Jones was KIA, so the CO would have only had one dog tag to give to Cullen in real life. See more »
In this generation, it's not easy finding movies that are not only excellent stories, but clean and wholesome for the whole family. The movie is "real" and not some fairy tale Christmas story. It makes you feel like you visited the characters yourself. The actors are all great, and the movie never gets boring. The plot continues to build on emotions and suspense of the fate of the lone soldier. It will make you look deeper into your own relationships to find your true feelings for someone in place of a false sense of belonging to someone. I would watch this many times again and more so at Christmas time. God bless the soldiers who receive such heartfelt Christmas cards and give them strength and hope to fulfill their dreams.
