It’s the midst of the Great Depression and the Kane family is struggling to survive. Dad is buried in debt with the medical bills from his son’s polio, and the family has just lost their mother, and as Christmas approaches, it looks like another year of no presents. But Dad has managed to save pennies and nickels all year long and has one dollar in change to spend, so he enlists the kids to use the dollar in the best way they can so each can give a gift to another. The Kane children rise to the occasion and catch the spirit of the season and bring a wonderful Christmas to the whole family.

Reminiscent of the Christmas Comes to Canaan movies, but perhaps more a nod to The Waltons or The Little House on the Prairie, this is a warm and uplifting Christmas story of a family who has it a lot worse off you, but manage to bring it together and make it a wonderful Christmas by focusing on love and family8 and less on presents. Brought to us by the UP network, is a really good heart warming Christmas film worthy of the genre. They did a good job with this family drama, and it was a pleasure to watch. It’s great that the smaller channels are pressing Hallmark and Lifetime, and the competition is good for everyone. They did a very nice job on this one, and it’s worth checking it out.
