This Christmas will change the Austin family forever. With a successful career in the wine business, two amazing children and having married his highschool sweetheart Suzie Maxwell, Andrew Austin has everything. But life and a past secret quickly bring change and in an instant, life no longer has the order and gentleness it once held. Suzie falls extremly ill and as Andrew struggles to find answers, his children Chris and Mary quietly search for their own. Facing a hectic holiday season, Andrew and family retreat to their summer home on Lake Erie to celebrate their last Christmas in peace. Away from the demands of the city, their world opens up to a moment in time they will never experience again as their small lakeside community quickly brings them its own wonderments.Written by

Warning: Very heavy handed anti-abortion guilt message film. Before you ruin your and your kids' Christmases forever: Beware! This is not a warm & fuzzy Christmas movie! This is a heavy handed anti-abortion morality lesson. It is heavy on guilt, sobbing, nightmares over an abortion, Catholic images of scary demon gravestones, while trying to justify the rightness of it with Catholic church interiors & icons, a priest, a pale cold corpse & a heavy ton of guilty torment to ram the anti-abortion message into your brain like a rusty metal stake in a scary Catholic graveyard. NOT at all appropriate for family viewing!! (unless you want you want your kids mentally twisted & permanently neurotic, fearful & hating you forever). Appropriate only for catechism scare/guilt lessons. Beating yourself and wearing a hair shirt for being a sinner would be more of an upper than watching this. Honestly I worry for the mental stability of kids being forced to watch this guilt & fear producing film, at any time of year, but it will ruin their Christmas experience forever.
