Storyline

Christmas eve, 1943. A small Georgia town struggles with the rationing and sacrifices of America at war. Christmas is no exception as 11-year-old Gordy and his sister Priscilla sense a fear in the train station where they await their father's homecoming. Propaganda posters and tense adult talk drive home the evil of the enemy. When a train loaded with German POWs arrives in the station, Gordy's curiosity is stronger than his fear. He dares to approach the prison train and makes contact with a young German soldier named Hans. Through the courage to trust and the song Silent Night, friends and foes learn the true meaning of Peace on Earth, Goodwill Towards Men, and hearts are forever changed. Based on true events. Written by Owen Smith

Children lead a small town past their fears to a place of common ground
29 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With images of fear and hatred all around them, a young brother and sister chose to listen to their own instincts of trust and care. They follow their curiosity past their fears and find that no matter how different people can be, with the Spirit of Love and Peace, we can all find common ground. This film ushered the "Christmas Spirit" into our home. After we watched it, there were days of questions, research and enlightenment for my children. Knowing that the events in the film were based on historical events that actually happened, made this piece even more heartwarming and life-touching. The talent is sincere and the scenery authentic. Every family should see this. Don't wait until Christmas!
