 Synopsis

It's winter in a poor coal mining town in the early 1900s.  When a foundling baby girl appears on the doorsteps of the company store, Annie, the possessive wife of the proprietor, Fergus, takes a shine to her.  But Arly, who works at the store and makes Christmas presents for all the kids in town, learns that the real mother is Francine, the wife of a miner.  Francine loves the baby, but is too poor to raise her and her older daughter, Gabrielle.  A cave-in at the mine sows tragedy among the miners and thier families and complicates matters further.  Francine, who loses her husband in the disaster, has to leave town, but she desperately wants to hold her baby once more.  On Christmas Eve, Arly engineers a pageant at the store with Annie as the Angel and Francine as Mary holding her baby in the manger, fulfilling her Christmas wish.  When Francine hands the baby back, Annie, who has recognized her as the birthmother, invites her to come and visit the child at any time.  This profound, beautiful story goes to the hear of what Christmas is all about - generosity of spirit and redemption through love.
