Storyline

From grade school class oral reports on one's most improbable Christmas wish, student Olivia begins to notice a few coming true. She and friend Lucas believe it's the long-abandoned house next door to her that grants the wishes (if made while throwing a rock at it). Olivia soon meets a reclusive old woman living inside and, together, they begin reviewing the wishes left at the gate (in a wish box built in front to stop folks from damaging the property). As Olivia wishes a new husband for her single mom, the landlord of the abandoned house (a doctor) comes into their lives, but Olivia would rather her mom had the peppy new substitute teacher. Some things must be left in God's hands. Written by statmanjeff

A gem of a movie
16 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a pleasant surprise amidst the onset of Christmas TV movies which appear this time of year without much substance or that are just plain silly. A gem of a story, well acted and filled with truthful moments about the true meaning of Christmas. Great entertainment for the whole family. Kevin Sorbo as well as Teri Polo, Della Reese and young Izabela Vidovic gave wonderful performances. I foresee a bright future for young Miss Vidovic. Hats off to writer Andrea Gyertson Nasfell for a heartwarming script. Two scene standout moments for me occurred first, with Ms. Reese's character, Elsie Waybright and Izabela Vidovic's character, Olivia Meade, as Elsie's character opens up to her young, new and very inquisitive friend Olivia about her daughter. The second scene was when Kevin Sorbo's character shares his story with young Olivia in the church. The thoughtful writing of both scenes and honest performances moved me very much. Well done and thank you as a viewer.
