Storyline

Nineteen days before Christmas, accountant Peter Brockman is dumped by his fiancée, Jill, because of his workaholic ways and being emotionally detached from life. Proverbially drowning his sorrows (with soda) at a lounge, Peter meets the lounge's "volunteer" blues pianist/singer Bob, who works solely for tips. The two discuss their love of music and Peter's long since forgotten dreams of becoming a musician when he was younger. When Bob invites Peter to his home for dinner with his family followed by a jam session, Peter has no idea that Bob's home is a shelter and that his family is comprised of the other homeless men. After speaking to Sister Agatha, the tough, straight-talking nun at the shelter, Peter, reevaluating his life, decides the best way he can help is to form a choir at the shelter, the choir's performances which would help give a little extra pocket money to its members so that they can have a merrier Christmas. The choir faces many obstacles, including the dichotomy ... Written by Huggo

The perfect family Christmas story
2 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The other posters seem to have missed the point that this movie was based on a true story about a group of homeless people who formed a choir. THAT'S what makes it so heartwarming, whether or not these viewers felt it was 'real' enough. Big name stars weren't needed for credible performances, as noted, and may have been detracting.

The story is about forgiveness. About second chances. And about giving time and self to help others achieve their potential. Although the real-life choir wasn't named, they went on to make six CDs and performed internationally. That's the real story behind the story. And what makes this a true seasonal film, deserving of the awards it won.
