A Short film with a big reach
15 August 2017 | by lvstanSee all my reviews

This Christmas film is an excellent film. It might not be for everyone but it is a film everyone should see.

What this film is about is a Mrs Mutterance. A woman who has ran a candy store out of the same location for years. The landlord however decides to evict her because he can make more money if her location if it were a laundry mat. So she has to move. Not only does she have to move her business she has to move her home! Her home is a little place on top of the business. Then something happens a freak snow storm happens and the landlord goes missing on Christmas Eve nobody wants to find him! After all he is not exactly a nice man,

The blizzard gets worse and the lard lord remain missing ! So Mrs. Mutterance and her children set out to search for him. Upon his rescue, he has a new view on life. Katherine Helmond, Kimble Joyner, Melissa Joan Hart, and Sid Caesar star.

This is a film that put the value not on money but your self worth. Not to be missed!
