On Christmas Eve in the 1890’s, a group of hobos on the outskirts of New York have an unwelcome visitor drop in on them. They agree to let him have some of their food and share their fire in exchange for some stories about acts of kindness from unlikely sources. The visitor even has the members of the group act out the stories. It turns out the visitor is an escaped convict, but before he runs off to avoid the police, he manages to touch the hearts of his “hosts” and to show them that Christmas is about more than the usual superficial things.
Recommended for ages 10 and up.
Q & A to take place Sunday December 2 and Friday December 7
