They were a family shattered by the past and struggling with the future. One visitor will change them forever.

In the small American town of New Chatham, Christmas is approaching for the Boyajian family. But father George (Emmy and Golden Globe nominee William Devane, "Knots Landing"), mother Carol (Emmy nominee Meredith Baxter, "Family Ties"), and their daughter, Jean (Reagan Pasternak Jailbait), have lost the desire celebrate. Immersed in grief since the death of their son on Christmas Eve 1991 in the Persian Gulf War, George and Carol have forgone the familial comfort and pleasures of the holidays. But this year, George is determined to bring his family together. This comes true in ways none of them could have anticipated.

George picks up a young man named Matthew (Dean McDermott, Brian's Song), a hitchhiker presumably without a place to stay. Accepting the generous invitation to spend the night at George's house, Matthew also agrees to a well-intentioned charade: to pretend, for Carol's sake, that he knew their beloved son in the war. But once inside the warmth of the Boyajian home, Matthew has a few surprises ins tore for all of them - ones that will renew their faith in each other and in the extraordinary miracles of Christmas.
