Set during the Great Depression, this is the heart-wrenching story of a young girl and her devoted but impoverished father. There's no work for the father, so the two of them are forced to ride the rails, searching for a safe place they can call home. Although times are tough, the love they share and the trust between them proves to be the most valuable Christmas gift of all.
