Storyline

Christmas eve, 1943. A small Georgia town struggles with the rationing and sacrifices of America at war. Christmas is no exception as 11-year-old Gordy and his sister Priscilla sense a fear in the train station where they await their father's homecoming. Propaganda posters and tense adult talk drive home the evil of the enemy. When a train loaded with German POWs arrives in the station, Gordy's curiosity is stronger than his fear. He dares to approach the prison train and makes contact with a young German soldier named Hans. Through the courage to trust and the song Silent Night, friends and foes learn the true meaning of Peace on Earth, Goodwill Towards Men, and hearts are forever changed. Based on true events. Written by Owen Smith

History tells a story
17 January 2007 | by littlelady1861See all my reviews

I have always had a love for history so this movie interested me before I ever saw it. Once I viewed it, I was in awe of the depth of the story. It is not just about a normal plot that is similar to another movie, but it encompasses what is human, hate, curiosity, and love. It tells a story of who we are, people who like to hate the unknown and believe the propaganda being feed to us by the media. Yet, some of us are curious about things we have not seen and risk ourselves to find out the truth. The most endearing part is that in the end we all have the ability to love one another. It takes a simple song to make the people realize this in the movie. The story has a simplicity to it that even a child can understand, but the message is for the adults. The fact that it is based on true events makes it even better.
