Christmas stories, church and spreading the reason for the season were always Jane’s forte. As far as Tim was concerned, a Christmas tree, presents and having his parents come over to spoil the kids was more manageable.
It was all that he could do to distract them on their first Christmas without their mother.
So when Kimmy, Tim’s little boy, asks to hear the real Christmas story, Tim is forced to confront not just his fractured faith but also his grief and neglected feelings as well as those of his children for the very first time since Jane’s death.
What starts out as a night by the fire might just end up as the beginning of a grieving family’s journey towards healing, closure and perhaps an understanding of the true meaning of Christmas.
